Season 2 Episode 5: Best Laid Plans

Best Laid Plans

This week Alex and Mary sit down to discuss some of their best laid plans, how those plans have been interrupted, and how they responded to those interruptions. They have discovered that, oftentimes in hindsight, it’s easy to laugh at how they have responded to change, but when reacting in the moment, a sudden and unexpected detour can cause a lot of heartache, often unnecessarily. They have learned developing a mindset that accepts change, prioritizes actions, and understands how to move forward can help guide their reactions to change, presenting as more of a ripple, rather than a tidal wave.
