Do your clients struggle with the complexity of their lives? How about you? The trouble is that our brains and bodies were honed over thousands of years to become simplification machines, protecting us from the overwhelming data of our lives. Over centuries, humans have developed shortcuts that have served us incredibly well, and we have gotten better at thriving in a more natural, simpler world. But now it turns out that these shortcuts are more misleading than helpful as we navigate a world more interconnected and dynamic than humans have ever known before. In a world where we need to interact intentionally with the complexity around us rather than pretending it doesn’t exist, these shortcuts have become “mindtraps” that lead us astray. As our clients’ lives (and our lives as coaches) get more complex, we need to be able to recognize these mindtraps and then choose a creative way to escape them.
