When change happens one in three people will find inspiration where others find imprisonment. What is their secret?
Grounded in the latest social science and enlivened by Nick Tasler's signature blend of wit, wisdom and storytelling, Ricochet takes you on a fast-paced quest to unravel the mystery of highly adaptive people. You'll meet researchers who have spent their lives cracking this case as well as people-people just like you-who have explored their way through the unexpected changes of life that ultimately reveal what we are capable of as leaders, creators, parents, and friends.
Adaptation is a skill that is hard-wired in our DNA. To ignite our resilient superpowers we must learn to use three simple laws of successful adaptation - Find Freedom, Pursue Progress, Make Meaning. When we do that we don't just survive change. We welcome change. We stop living in fear of the next challenge we have yet to face. Instead we start savoring the crazy, exciting, messed-up adventure of everyday life.
