Do you agree that each of us is more comfortable when we “know the drill”?
Presented with something new, we first look for our “knowns”. Recognition of some people or details makes it easier to engage with the unfamiliar. We start to make connections. Each of us has our group of “knowns” and these are the patterns we use as our basics for navigation throughout our life.
How often do we intentionally think about adding to our inventory of patterns?
Of course we train in our chosen professions. And we easily pursue our free-time pleasures. We become confident in these areas.
