Most of us use some “strategies” to gain a measure of control over our lives. Here are some common ones that we all use from time to time. See if you can find your favorite default strategy:

• Denial

• Comfortable boredom, laced with escapism

• Irrepressible good humor

• Fatalism

• Hormonal surge of youth

• Magical belief in technology

• Comforted by the myth of control⁠1

In this episode we try and get a better handle on our default strategies and getting to a healthy measure of control over our lives.
