Roles are Martial Arts for Agency
score: 7 (7 votes) ·
As a student of Martial Arts, I especially enjoyed the crystal clarity of the first half of your submission. I would like to add, however, that it is the beginner’s lesson that teaches us to appreciate that it is possible to respond far more quickly and fluidly with a well rehearsed set of moves void of thought interference. The greater aspiration though and the life lesson for me is that in other areas of our lives, we should believe that everything will come together naturally based on the wide range of investments already made to date; but in order to reap the full benefits, we should attempt to be "without mind" to allow the spontaneous development of sequences across disciplines and even across roles.
