In case of an emergency

Life is full of emergencies. Subsequently, we build systems to avoid the next emergency.

Reassurance, insurance, contingency plans, uncertainty…it’s all there.

We build our whole lives around risk management, the next set of fires, in case something were to fail, yet spend so little time embracing risk and failure. 

The problem is, we have become so hyper-focused in trying to avoid problems, we forget that problems are not avoidable.

So when someone shows up and follows through with what they set out to accomplish, we are amazed. We are amazed because we planned for the worst-case scenario and it didn’t happen. We are dumbfounded when Plan B didn’t happen.

Spend less time building systems for in case of emergencies. You are more resilient than you think.
