A minute to learn...

crisis management resourcefulness self-leadership Sep 06, 2020

If you, like me, used to play the board game "Othello", you will be familiar with the tagline "A minute to learn, a lifetime to master". This notion is also very true for one thing that has proven extremely helpful during the first half of 2020 when encountering the direct and indirect implications of the pandemic. 

It helps to focus on what you actually can control...

I'm talking about the activity of conscious and unconscious reflection of small and huge changes to our daily lives. Maybe we are struggling with social distancing, remote work, or travel restrictions. Maybe we have lost someone we love, our job or faced serious illness ourselves.

No matter small or huge, we still do not know for how long it will last, or what it will look like at the other end. The only thing we can control is what we learn from what has happened, our attitudes and perspectives obtained via reflection and our willingness to step up to the occasion. 

My experience is that more people than ever before are spending time reflecting on their values, priorities and decisions, coming from a more peaceful state of mind. What is really important to us, and why? How can we remain resourceful even though we can't control what is happening and for how long it will last? I see people making big decisions about their personal and professional lives based upon these key questions. Building self-leadership skills and capabilities seem vital to enduring this time and age. 

During the spring season, I conducted a series of webinars on various self-leadership topics that remain relevant upon the fall season. I strongly encourage you to check in my webinar hub to see which topics resonate with you. Shortly, there will be more resources available on similar topics.

Happy reflecting!
