When we put ourselves in a situation where there could be a problem or it could be an opportunity, we tend to do less than we should. This is another reason why it is important to be aware of your triggers. You should be able to anticipate what will happen in your event or situation, but not when you are on autopilot.
If we are on autopilot, we don’t have the time to wait for others to take a decision. By doing what you can, you can avoid a situation that might have been a better fit for you.
When you’re on autopilot you are only able to do what you can on time or in a situation where you will be in a state of alert, even if there’s no chance of what you would have otherwise done. You are able to do so at the very least by having enough time to think through your next options before making a decision.
The biggest difference between a person who is able to wait and a person who is unable to wait is the way they think. The person who can wait is able to think of all the options, the possibility of them all happening, and the probability of it all happening. The person who is unable to wait is unable to think about an alternative. She’s able to think about the options and probabilities of the choices that are available to her, but unable to consider all the possible outcomes.
I’m not saying that people are lazy or that they are dumb. I’m saying that they are able to think about everything possible just by looking at it. I have to admit that the person who can work on the choices that are available to her, but not her mind, will have to wait for her to think about all the options available to her.
But that’s not necessarily true of us. We are able to think about every possible outcome. We can choose what to do. We can think about the possible consequences. But we can’t think about the possible alternatives. A person without self-awareness just hit the bottle and doesn’t look back.
And that’s kinda why we’re here. I’ve gotten to the point where I can’t even be sure what I’m thinking.
If you have a tendency to think about everything, you will be more likely to fall back to the past, which will eventually determine your action plan. But this is probably only a couple of months old, so I’m not sure on that. But this is the first time I have been able to get out of my head the thought of everything.
The one thing that everyone can agree on, is that when you take the trouble to learn a new skill, you can only master it for so long before you forget it. This is especially true when it comes to things we are already quite good at. In that case, we are often completely off-balanced, and we lose focus on the skills that we already know (and can do very well).
This is why it is imperative that you learn new skills, and to learn new skills you must practice. What you do in a new skill depends on the specific skill. For example, if you are a musician, you will probably be able to play in your new career without much effort, because you are still a good musician. If you are a writer, you will probably have to work on your writing, because you are still a good writer.
