In the past week or so we have been talking about the importance of awareness and I talked about the daily practice I do to help improve my awareness skills. Â Today I want to give a specific example of an exercise that I use to practice that can be adapted to many situations:
First of all, I hateÂ convenienceÂ stores and gas stations, but there are times when they can beÂ convenient. Â Since I do choose to use the stores I make sure I have a routine to maintain my awareness when I do. Â It is pretty simple!
This idea can be applied to any situation not just aÂ convenienceÂ store.
- Identify the threat areas
- PrioritizeÂ the likely hood of a threat in each area
- Evaluate the areas in order of priority
- Go or No Go
