Yeah that does help clear some things up for me thank you.
So, as this employee, my mindset is reactive of the environment and my boss, as a result do I not necessarily have the degree of freedom to choose my mindset? (probably in this scenario only and maybe not exercise for example). Sorry if that is just an extension of what I've commented before - I find this stuff really fascinating!
I really appreciate you taking the time to help me clarify a few things - really insightful, thank you!
