Managing Your Default Behaviors
We all have default behaviors. When we are in the moment, trying our best to perform well, how we handle these automatic reflexes can be the difference between success and failure. It’s these moments that add up to the larger tasks and projects that are our work. Moments in which behavior – what we think, feel, say, and do ­­- is the primary driver of performance.

As a high performing professional, knowing your defaults, anticipating and planning your overrides and designing your day, will help you avoid unconscious defaults and provide yourself more behavioral flexibility in the moments of truth that matter most.

The following questions are designed to stimulate your thinking and help you evaluate your relationship to default behaviors.
