Err on the Side of Action

You may have heard of what’s known as the fight or flight response. This is when we interpret a stimulus in the world to be dangerous, which ratchets up our adrenaline and alertness and readies our bodies to either flee at full speed or engage in a fight to the death. What’s less frequently mentioned is that this response actually has a third component—freezing.

For most, this is when the adrenaline rush is so extreme that we are essentially left frozen in shock. For those who have made a habit of avoiding action, this is our default response no matter what happens.

It’s easier said than done to break these patterns, but this chapter contains a few ways to err on the side of action and get moving more frequently and consistently.
