The 4 A’s

I listened to the Tim Ferris interview with George Mumford who has been a Mindfulness Coach to the likes of Bulls players (Michael Jordan). Mumford spoke about how when faced with adversity or challenge it is important to deploy the 4 A’s. Is there a way to create space between stimulus and response? In moments of crisis — these are opportunities for latent abilities to express themselves. We must try to slow things down and see the opportunity.
