77. Firefighter Mentality: Why Problems Keep Re-Emerging & How to Break the Cycle
Play • 1 hr 7 min

Does it feel you spend all your time fighting fires? Like a conveyor belt, urgent demands keep showing up that dominate your time, attention and resources.

So, you repeatedly find yourself interrupting  or deferring long-term solutions in order to deal with superficial effects.

Because you keep moving from one thing to the next, you tend to leave things half done and patched up. As a result, these problems find their way back into your space and sometimes, show up even worse.

This is what is called the Firefighter Mentality. This week Olawunmi teaches why this is a very unproductive way to live and how you can break this cycle by taking a more strategic approach to solving the problems you encounter at work and in life.
