The term "the sky is falling" has become a popular phrase. It is commonly understood to represent a feeling of imminent disaster. Reading the old tale inspired me to reflect upon how we perceive "disaster." Reflection left me with several questions.
- How do we process uncomfortable situations?
- Are we too reactive and quick to view the sky as falling when things don't go our way?
- Do we make too many decisions based on emotion before allowing reason to enter the process?
- Do we allow "Chicken Littles" to influence our mindset?
- Do we examine situations ourselves to verify truth or do we accept reality from others?
