From Deb Lee on unclut­terer: David Allen says, “A reason a lot of people are feeling over­whelmed is because people are not in true survival or crisis mode as often as they have been in much of our history. The inter­esting thing about crisis is that it actu­ally produces a type of serenity. Why? Because in a crisis, people have to inte­grate all kinds of infor­ma­tion that’s poten­tially rele­vant, they have to make deci­sions quickly, they have to then trust their intu­itive judg­ment calls in the moment. They have to act … they’re very focused on some outcome, usually live–you know, survive.” · Go to Seven ways to cope with stress →
