Bull Sharks & Princesses

I want you to consider two (2) categories:

-- BULL SHARK = adaptable, tolerant of multiple environments. -- PRINCESS & THE PEA = sensitive, aware, finicky, intolerant.

We can hold different traits in different parts our lives. I'm not certain that any one (1) is better than the other. They are simply different. They have tradeoffs, compromises, and side effects.

This theory overlaps with: preferences, tolerances, sensitivities, awareness, generalist vs specialist, and more.

There are times to be the Bull Shark...and times to be the Princess.
