#8: The Quick Fix

This week, Lorna and Avrum discuss the desire for quick fix solutions and easy answers, as well as the role of anxiety in change.

  • “There is such a fear of losing (peace and harmony) that people will go to any lengths of compromising themselves, their values, their desires and their beliefs to maintain the peace and harmony.”
  • “Anxiety is so much a part of the life force that it must have an upside.”
  • "What is it about the anxiety that easy answers or quick fix solutions are so incredibly seductive?”
  • “I think that you think that people know what you mean by thinking.”
