There is so much of the world that we do not control. We are surrounded by people, just like us, who are making choices and exercising their free will.
In many ways, we can’t escape the impact of other people’s choices, especially when we are collaborating with others.
That means we often have to wait on someone else to make a choice so that we can move forward with what we want to do. We can be worried that they will make a choice that we don’t like OR we can feel stuck because we can’t do anything until they choose.
