The Complete Lawyer published an interesting article today about being reflective. Stephanie West Allen and Jeffrey Schwartz discuss about:
Banishing The Reactive Mind
Becoming More Self-Aware
The Golden Moment Of Choice
Exercising The Mind

The changes are either by default as it interacts with your environment or deliberately as it interacts with your mind. Your brain can either be randomly molded by external circumstances or artistically sculptedby your self-aware mind. Which do you think leads to an intentional-and self-directed life—letting your brain be rewired by outside forces, or ensuring that the brain rewire is an inside operation?
