How we do anything is how we do everything.
Being habitual creatures, the beliefs we have are largely universal:
- Panic and worry: Opportunities are scary. Emails are bad news until you can confirm otherwise. You can do it if you sweat all the details.
- Energy and confidence: Opportunities are worth considering. Emails are worth reading at the the appointed time. You can do anything.
- Reckless and bravado: Opportunities mustn’t be missed. Emails must be responded to at once. You can do everything.
Our habits follow us everywhere. Which bucket do yours fall into? Which does the best work?
