The choices we make in our mundane moments determine our options in times of crisis.
Our lives are shaped by how we show up in these crisis times when the stakes are high, and we have to perform under pressure. But these turning points are themselves shaped by what has preceded them.
If we are physically fit when the disease strikes, we have a better chance of surviving.
If we are financially strong when layoffs happen, we have more time to find a great job.
If we are emotionally healthy when someone treats us wrong, it’s easier to avoid overreaction and take the high road.
If we have spent years listening to our kids share about the inconsequential things in their lives, we will be the ones they turn to when it’s time to talk about a true crisis.
Don’t despise the little moments. Don’t rush through them. The mundane moments no one sees will change the shape of the crises that strike your life.
