I was a woman in my 40s, working in a services company, with a house, savings, car etc. Although I wasn’t a career-driven, label-clad achievement monkey, I was doing OK. Then two things happened. I came across Dr Steve Peters’ book The Chimp Paradox, and I had a mini stroke.
Now, I’m still a woman in my 40s, working in a services company, with a house, savings, car etc, but I’m learning how my mind works and what will make me happy and healthy in life.
I hope that by sharing my experiences, it may help other Humans who are also learning to manage their Chimps.
NB As The Chimp Paradox (by Dr Steve Peters) is helping me, there will be references to chimp management concepts, but they’re just my views and not endorsed by the book’s author.
