Assess, aggress. Assess, aggress. This simple pattern of action seems to orient me toward a positive outcome, no matter what the scenario.
*apologies for my military-influenced verbiage, when I use the word “aggress,” it’s framed within the context of strategic aggression, or aggressively serving my strategy. So in dealing with others, the best way to aggressively serve my strategy is often to demonstrate kindness and caring; outside of abnormal circumstances, outward aggression seems to garner negative results, more often than not. And in activities that require timing and tempo, sometimes the best way to aggressively serve my strategy is to sit back and wait, for if I rush my actions, I will lose my opportunity.
