A human interest story caught my eye recently and reminded me of one of my favourite pieces of wisdom.
Oswald Laurence, who died over a decade ago, had his recording of “Mind The Gap” removed from the London Underground Embankment station to be replaced by a new recording. His widow, who traveled on the tube simply to hear her husband’s voice, campaigned for its reinstatement and the tube company agreed.
I often use “Mind The Gap” as a reminder to create a gap between stimulus and response in order to provide a more measured reaction to challenging situations. Being a frequent train and tube traveler, I am reminded most days of this useful piece of advice.

Glad to see the press can report something positive and meaningful instead of always focusing on the negative aspects of the news.
