It is often in the times that we think of as hard, tough and difficult that we make the biggest changes and develop the most momentum.
When everything feels good enough, it’s easy to do nothing to change, even if things could be better.
A semi-comfortable normal is the enemy of change and growth.
I sometimes describe this as a fur-lined rut.
A rut of seductive comfort seducing us to stay, but limiting, nonetheless.
As the pandemic continues, so many are talking about, and even yearning to return to ‘normal’. This is the siren call of the fur-lined rut from which they were so rudely yanked by the disruption.
Instead, focus on what you have learned or gained from the disruption.
Focus on what society has learned or gained from the disruption.
Focus on your best guess as to how things will pan out rather than heed the siren call for what used to be in the ‘good old days’.
Are you listening to the siren call from the past, or are you moving forward?
My best wishes, Paul
