For example, one of my associates teaches his sales staff the tool of indifference to remind them to move on when someone says no.
I don’t like the word. It always struck me as a description of someone who doesn’t care. I prefer to teach not being attached to an outcome, which in my mind gives you the freedom to both care and let go.
Then the other day I was taking myself to task for not sticking to my diet and exercise plan, and my basic self said, “Geez Paulette, you need a little healthy indifference!” That simple statement caused me to look into how healthy indifference could help reduce stress in the pursuit of goals.
