Recently I wrote a post comprised of a few quotes and received a lot of thoughtful responses. This post is similar in construct. As you are anticipating a new school year (as I do even now) or a fast-approaching new season or year:

  • Are you taking the time for self-reflection?
  • What decisions are ahead that your must make for you?
  • Are your choices taking you toward your best work-life?

A few quotes from three great psychologists to fuel your thinking—

Being entirely honest with oneself is a good exercise.
Sigmund Freud

Man’s main task in life is to give birth to himself, to become what he potentially is.
Erich Fromm

The spirit of a man is constructed out of his choices.
Irvin D. Yalom

This thinking should not be torture, rather a light-hearted, exciting, curious discovery.
