Choice-Fullness is a power we all possess, but seldom think about. It is made up of three things – our Awareness (of ourselves and the world around us) – our Abilities (such as critical thinking, creativity, communication, and resilience) – and our Control (the self-management of our thoughts, feelings and actions). The more we develop our awareness, ability, and control (our Choice-Fullness), the more we are able to take charge of our own lives – and future.
If you’re like most people, it’s pretty easy to get “derailed” by unexpected and even predictable external events, some that seem to come from nowhere and others that emerge more slowly “beneath the radar”. Many times you see it coming, but with everything else on your plate, it’s easier to pay attention to other, less “painful” things. The factors that disrupt the safety and predictability of our daily lifestyle patterns are escalating and will continue to escalate in the future as life’s levels of complexity increase.
So just HOW do you learn to become more CHOICE-FULL and in charge of dealing with events such as:
- Unforeseen physical Illness and health problems
- Mental health issues and depression
- Internet attacks and abuse
- Unexpected toxic communication from friends
- Immersion and addiction to negative and harmful media
- Drug and alcohol abuse
- Business downturns and declining relevance business brands
- Economic upheavals, financial change, bankruptcy
- Family issues such as separation, abuse, and divorce
- Catastrophic environmental events, floods, fires, climate change
- Family tragedies, illnesses, and the death of a loved one
- Employment layoffs
- Unforeseen accidents
- Unpredictable housing and living expense changes
- Difficult employment potential relative to educational preparation
CHOICE-FULL Change provides the process of preparing for unexpected and potentially harmful negative future events and learning to re-balance and adjust quickly during events that cause disequilibrium and stress. It’s more important now especially, to understand how to continue forward toward maximizing your full human potential and well being, even under externally limiting conditions.
CHOICE-FULL Change involves a very specific type of preparation, based on brain science. Executive function, including higher critical thinking and creative skills and abilities are trainable, not guesswork. To develop these skills and abilities takes both awareness and commitment, but the journey is well worth the effort. While some people already figured these skills out, others languish in the illusion that life will continue to quietly move along without major disruptions and that if things do go wrong, they’ll figure it out at the time the negative events occur. But, if you’ve noticed, it doesn’t work that way. The people that DO figure things out and manage to turn lemons into lemonade ahead of time, have a different set of skills and abilities, and it’s those critical skills and abilities, interacting with the rapidly changing environment, that make all the difference in whether a person will create a happy, successful and fulfilled future. FutureWise is committed to helping develop the critical tools necessary today, to increase CHOICE-FULLNESS. The key to higher levels of CHOICE-FULLNESS for the future, is developing a toolbox of powerful and effective skills that can filter and remove increasing levels of incoming “noise” and that restore and maintain equilibrium in a culture of unexpected upsets, chaos, rapidly changing external events and accelerating levels of NOISE.
CHOICE-FULL Change helps us filter the Noise, reclaim our time, balance our lives, enrich our relationships and elevate our fulfillment. The CHOICE-FULL Change Dimensions are divided into three LIFE CHOICE SKILLS.

- THE FIVE STEP P.A.U.S.E.
