On this 5th and final installment of the Bend Not Break series with Daniel Schmachtenberger, we unpack the framework and mindset needed to begin thinking about responses.

This conversation touches on what it means to work on personal development in the light of a polycrisis, and how it is truly a never-ending but necessary challenge. Finally, Daniel and Nate break down a 3×3 grid on the time frame and category of responses.

Whilst this is the end of this series, there is, of course, much left to be unpacked. If there are any specific topics you want covered in a follow up Daniel/Nate conversation, we encourage you to leave your questions in the comments of the Youtube video, which can be found here ->
