There’s a little suspense today as I will likely have my final call with Sustainable Botanicals tomorrow, and I’m eager to see if they want me as their intern. I’ve been interested in the company for a while, and I’ve enjoyed working with their team to the extent I have.
I remind myself that the difference between a suspenseful event, and an unsuspenseful one, are the stakes which I set. There is nothing scary about making a PB & J, and there is nothing inherently scary about a job interview either, provided you do not give the circumstance power over you.
Either you control the circumstance, or the circumstance controls you.
