“Stepping into dangerous environments compels us to change the lens through which we view our existence and our survival. We think more broadly and creatively, we operate with more confidence and certainty, we don’t waste time. Crucially, it gives us the opportunity to develop pathways and approaches that previously were unfamiliar to us.”
