Discomfort is the birthplace of change and change is inevitable. Unfortunately, whenever there is change, desired or not, it is the place where we tend most to behave in ways that lead us to question ourselves, in other words, "to react." There’s nothing more uncomfortable or conflict producing than getting caught in the crossfire of two competing don’t wants. This is where there are two different things that have come up for you, that you don't want to happen, and you have to decide between the two of them. Often when this happens, one of the ways that we react is by avoiding the "discomfort" by acting impulsively. Impulsive decisions aren’t decisions at all. They are in fact, a reaction called the "fight" reaction. It’s hard to SEE it, because it’s a hidden reaction. You believe that you made "an executive decision," on a tough call but you really didn't decide.
To help you understand this a bit better, take, for example, what happened with my client Steve’s “Dream Job” interview. Read about it here.
