If I had to fill a swimming pool with a bucket I could debate the fairness of it or realize my options:
1) Whine about it
2) Shut up and fill the swimming pool with a bucket
3) Fill the swimming pool with a bucket while I whine about it
My adaptation to Canadian life involved choosing option 3. Although it is important to fight unfair situations, it is more important for me to do so in a manner that allows me to survive and then thrive.
Many times, I found myself unable to fully grasp or understand what was going on in my new environment, I remember sometimes feeling completely overwhelmed, angry, frustrated or just giving up. What I discuss in “My Handbook” influenced my life. Looking back I can see that I did not lack desire, drive or ability but the right concepts and tactics.
