Do you sometimes find yourself thinking that you don’t have a choice? Your circumstances and obligations seem to prevent you from taking any course of action except for one. But the thing is, we always have a choice. We choose all the time. Life is made up not of the big choices we have to make but of the little, compounding choices we make on a daily basis. So what choice will you make today? You choose.

In this You Are Not a Frog Quick Dip, Rachel delves into choice. She shares the one thing healthcare professionals get wrong about choice and why we find its concept difficult. She discusses the concept of the Zone of Power and how it can help us assess what’s in and out of our control in making choices. At the end of the day, we only have one wild and precious life — it’s your choice how to spend it.

If you want to know how to begin making choices with unclouded acceptance, tune in to this episode!
