Our feelings on what resilience means in a tactical setting and how to make sure you are not an easy victim. Includes some thoughts on “resilience training” and where mental toughness comes from.
Like many good ideas in the tactical community, “Slow is smooth, Smooth is Fast,” is one of those that started out with strong roots and grew into something barely recognizable. We lose IQ points when the adrenaline hits–the emotional response that we experience under stress bypasses our ability to make rational decisions. We think that this phrase is best applied to our cognitive awareness and ability to take control of feeling overwhelmed, get a true sense of the problem at hand, reason with competing priorities, and bring calm to the chaos. It’s a useful training tool, but it really doesn’t have anything to do with “acting slow,” it’s about slowing our mind down enough to make sense of what’s happening around us.
