Our brain. One of my mentors likes to say an unmanaged mind is like a two-year old running around with a knife. Bad things might NOT happen, but the risk is high that they will! Our human brain is pre-wired with one over-arching goal: Survive.If you are breathing right now and not starving, part of your brain is perfectly content. It likes that status quo and it does not want to change that status. This is the primitive force within our minds that conspires to keep us stuck. Unfortunately, it is spectacularly effective at accomplishing this. In fact, it’s so good, we don’t even realize it’s happening!
Let’s face it, effective decision making is an important skill leaders need to develop. In the society we live in, we are busy! As humans moved from an agricultural economy to an industrial economy, people knew what they were going to do because every day was pretty much the same.
