Our seventh Quest2017 prompt, provided by inspiring influencer, father, author, media producer and entrepreneur Jonathan Fields landed a bit differently than the previous ones did. In response, I made lists identifying what’s happening with me, and how I act and affect others when I’m reacting and when I am acting with intention.  I did this brainstorm-style, listing what first came to mind. Then I looked at all four lists, and found something important there. My discovery: promoting thoughtful action means creating the conditions and context that support them.

Here’s the prompt:

And my responses:


1. Conditions that promote reactivity.


2. Conditions that promote acting with intention.


3. Not my best self when I’m in reactive mode!!!


4. Here’s the discovery: to promote thoughtful action, focus on creating the conditions that support it.
