I am a top-down, macro thinker. I consider the big picture issues and allow them to dominate my preferences and decisions. Minute details are important, but they are lower down the importance scale, and can be ignored, ignored temporarily, delegated, automated, and/or removed from my strategic capacities. I do not stress about the small stuff.
I am ready for conflict – whether they be undesired outcomes, bad news, arguments, accusations, confusions, negative self-talk, misunderstandings, and things that irritate me. These are common; these are opportunities to switch to healthier perspectives, make better decisions, and increase wisdom; and these conflicts are successful if God is on my side. I pause, consult with Him first and throughout, and respond in a godlier way.
I am excited for new today. New people I’m meeting, new things I’m learning, new opportunities to vet, and new initiatives I’m incorporating. I have a healthy ratio of routine and growth.
