This is part 1 of a longer 2-hr live broadcast. So you'll notice that the unedited version has lots of extra stuff :)
In this podcast i talk about how to avoid dealing with someone (or some situation) that is making you feel nutty, and I frame it in terms of thinking about a sprinkler. To avoid getting wet, you do both of these things: you walk around the sprinkler, AND you put on a raincoat. We tend to get stuck staring at the shitty boss, the irritating husband, the bratty child (the sprinkler) – and we wonder "why are they doing this TO ME."
That’s what boozers do. We look around, find existing problems, and drink AT them. "Fuck you, I’ll show, I’ll drink at you."
Especially in the first 200 days.
so here's an audio on how to identify (and avoid) the sprinklers in your life.
i mention the sober good works fund, here.
homework: sometime in the last 48 hrs, something like this happened to you. did you walk into the sprinkler, walk around it, or put on a raincoat?
