As a world we are transitioning in many facets of our lives where the outcomes remain unknown. This is perhaps the first time in historical memory that as global collective we are facing a future that is not clear and where change is certainly being thrust upon us.
To address the current period of uncertainty it is important to have “resilience”. The Oxford dictionary defines resilient as springing back, of being buoyant. This is a quality that I encourage everyone – myself included to embrace at this time.
As some of us work from home, and others go out to provide needed services, and others have received news of lay off or termination from their places of work resilience is necessary. The short- and longer-term future in the current period of changes that are emerging have yet to manifest.
One of the tenants to value is to leave over thinking behind and settle into the unknown. Not an easy thing to do at the best of times. The working landscape will be different when this current situation has run its course. Those who are able to spring back and demonstrate resilience will be in a better position to create and move on to what is next.
