INSOURCING, REFLECTION AND THE LONG SHORT PATH

Chanie Chein

"The Long Short Path" by Hashlucha Chanie Chein reflects on her 21 years at Chabad of Brandeis and the importance of "insourcing" through reflection and personal agency. Chein contrasts two approaches to life: the "short, long way," where individuals outsource decisions to external authorities, and the "long, short way," which involves a slower, introspective process of self-discovery and growth. Chein argues that while outsourcing is necessary in early life, maturity requires an inward journey to understand and own one's choices. She introduces a pedagogical framework based on design, commitment, group support, and independence to facilitate this reflective process. The goal is to empower individuals with the tools and language needed to navigate their unique paths with agency and vibrancy, ultimately leading to deeper personal fulfillment and long-term success.
