Thank you Chris. These low/high agency references are excellent. Going to dive in.

Thanks Chris. Great bits, as usual.

I agree agency is trainable.

A lot of people are low agency because high agency feels riskier.

You need to act. You need to do stuff. You need to move. You need to put yourself out there. You need, in short, to take some risks and battle (a certain degree of) uncertainty.

We know that people dislike it.

Normally, I find that action is what helps there. It's a bit of tautology but, yes, action develops agency.

You can't think your way to high agency. You have to practice it.
