Issue 59 - 02 | Being Strategic: The Antidote to Fear
By Erika Andersen Published June 3, 2009 11:41 p.m.

"The antidote to fear? Pull people out of their panic and self-protective impulses by first acknowledging the difficulties, then raising their eyes and hearts to a possibility of success. At that point you can take advantage of their newly available and hopeful energy to make that possibility a reality.

This is the essence of what I call being strategic: doing a clear and accurate assessment of the current situation, then articulating the possibility of a successful future. And at that point, when you see clearly where you are and where you hope to go, staying strategic means making core directional choices … about how to achieve that future you’ve envisioned.”
