Book Excerpt

People can find certainty in different ways.

Someone reading this book loves their routine. They enjoy having that certainty of each day’s schedule. They rely on it. They get off track if their routine is disrupted.

Someone reading this book (along with the one writing it!) loves their to-do list. Yes, a to-do list is a great organizational idea, but does it go beyond planning to obsession?

Someone reading this book doesn’t like surprises. They will go out of their way to not be surprised. They simply don’t adapt well to the unexpected. Don’t throw them a surprise party!

Someone reading this book has their life all planned out. At a certain age, they will marry. At another age, they will have children. They know how many children they will have. They have an idea of when and where they will retire. Can I tell you all the ways that these plans could go sideways?

Before he owned the Dallas Cowboys football team, Jerry Jones made his millions as a wildcatter who would find oil by drilling between dry holes. Jones once said:

“I have a very high tolerance for ambiguity. A low tolerance for ambiguity is when somebody has to know that weekly check is going to be there on Friday or they’re not a good functioning person.”
