I was at a ballgame with my friend Lisa Jimenez and we were discussing a mutual acquaintance. Namely his habit of simply ignoring anything he finds threatening. She kind of challenged his thinking in an email. He replied that he needed time to think about it, and would respond later.
Now it’s months later and when he writes, he never brings up the subject. I guess he just figures that if he never mentions it again, she will just forget about it. More likely, she’ll just forget about him.
You see this a lot with the herd. When they face a challenge, they think that maybe if they just ignore it, it will go away by itself. They are like the little girl who covers her eyes with her hands and says, “Now you can’t see me!”
Total avoidance mentality. And what a waste. Because it is in facing and working through challenges, that we build our character and create our breakthroughs.
So how are you doing on that?
