"How We Really Should Be"

Click image for larger size.
"Being forced to confront the prospect of failure head-on, to study it, dissect it, tease apart all its components and consequences really works. After a few years of doing that pretty much daily, you've forged the strongest possible armor to defend against fear: hard-won competence. Our training pushes us to develop a new set of instincts: instead of reacting to danger with a fight-or-flight adrenaline rush, we're trained to respond unemotionally by immediately prioritizing threats and methodically seeking to defuse them. We go from wanting to bolt for the exit to wanting to engage and understand what's going wrong, then fix it."
