Personal Response Ability

Feb 9, 2022

We often talk about the idea of responsibility. We need to take “personal responsibility” for our lives and improve them on our own. The thing is, though…that sort of assumes we have free will. Research on how our systems work indicates we might not actually have free will. If that is the case…can we really be held responsible for our actions? In this podcast, rather than talk about “personal responsibility” in the sense that we have “control” over our actions, I go into a bit more nuance and talk about “personal response ability” …as in…our ability to respond to situations. And instead of talking about free will and control, I talk about ways in which we may at least influence our lives in positive ways.
