Situations Matter is a thought-provoking and entertaining exploration of the invisible forces that influence your life—and how understanding them improves everything you do.
Just who do you think you are anyway?
We humans make it a habit wrestling with questions about the self. Existential musing lies at the heart of our most beloved forms of art. The question of who we really are sends us off on inspiring journeys of self-exploration but also toward sobering epiphanies of personal shortcomings.
As with much of daily life, this process of self-perception is subject to the power of context. That is, the conclusion that situations matter isn’t limited to public behavior or how we think about others. Even the most private of perceptions–our very sense of self–is shaped by where we are and who we’re with, though we may resist this notion.
