“In an effort to survive the constant inbound and to deal with unreliable others, we fall into a default escape strategy — an automatic mood, assessment, and pattern of behavior — that likely won’t get us to the future we want to create.” – Kari Granger
What is your go-to under stress — anxiety and late nights? Righteousness and swooping in as the hero? Resignation and gossip? Fear and hiding out? With the constant barrage of things coming at us each day and minefields of unreliable people in our lives, human beings tend to react with habitual moods, thoughts, and patterns of behavior.
