Fear can drive us to inaction as well. it can cause us to retreat to our cave and basically let the — make the world go away. The worst thing you can do, because if you try to disengage with what is going on around you — one, it doesn’t further your actions. You feel further out of control and, frankly, if you don’t manage your life — if you manage your career — there are lots of people out there who wil gladly manage it for you. Your managers. Your supervisors. Your family. Your spouse. If you don’t make a decision, they will gladly go, “You need to do this!” and all of a sudden, you’ve lost even further control. You given up your control,to them. Which I don’t think is necessarily something you want to do. I think, even in the smallest ways, we need to feel in control of our own lives as much as we can.
