Ownership

Ownership is a very powerful concept. It is defined as "the act, state, or right of possessing something".  Ownership denotes there is some sense of control.


This concept is something that can be applied to your own life. It's not about the idea of trying to control every aspect of your life, or trying to be so rigid that there is no bending in plans.


No, ownership comes down to being responsible for yourself and what your actions are. You can only control what you can control. In that sense you own your reactions to things. You own how you show up to things. You own what you are showing up to and what gets your attention. Obviously things can come up, but without a plan, things end up getting overlooked or missed.


The whole concept is pretty interesting. It forces you to understand what is part of your control and what is out of it.


The key is deciding what is what and only trying to control what it is that you can control.


And yes, I have been rereading a little of Jocko Willink's book.


Until next time.
