We live in an age of overwhelming chaos-and it's taking a toll on all of us. Every day, there's more to do and less time to do it in.At our core, we know we've lost control. We've lost our grips on what we really want and who we really want to be. As the first female F-14 Tomcat Fighter Pilot in the U.S. Navy as well as a mom, wife, business consultant, Wall Street Journal bestselling author, and speaker to audiences across the globe, Carey Lohrenz knows that the stress here on land is just as intense as the stress 40,000 feet up in the air. But she's got a secret weapon most people don't: years of training to overcome the specific natures of stress, chaos, burnout, anxiety, and pressure:Span of Control You might be familiar with the usage of the term in the corporate world: your span of control is the number of direct reports you can effectively manage at one time. But in the Navy, the idea is a lot broader.
Your span of control is determined by the things you can and should control at any given time and reminds you what to focus on right in the moment, knowing that any other stuff is uncontrollable and shouldn't take up precious mental space. For Carey, recognizing her span of control kept her focused on what mattered and became a primary tool in taming the distractions and pressures of flying demanding, high-pressure missions.
In order to solve this problem of chaos, and make our goals, dreams, commitments happen, we have to understand that to succeed when the pressure is on, we've got to know what we can and cannot control. Span of Control is a high-octane dose of encouragement and practicality. With the help of eye-opening science, gripping personal stories, insightful interviews, prescriptive advice, and helpful worksheets, tools, and exercises, anyone can find something transformative in these pages and will be empowered to create positive change in their own lives and the world around them.
