15 Apr Can You Beat Uncertainty?
Life is full of surprises. Some of which many people find delightful or challenging. Throughout life, situations will pop up that there are no brakes to stop. However, if you replace the tendency to overreact with qualities such as soundness and balance perhaps the journey within uncertainty will be less severe. Keep the below action-items in mind as you, your family or business navigate within the COVID-19 pandemic:
Be realistic. Acquire the facts about what you are dealing with. Choose not to ignore unfavorable situations. Be assured as a member of a skillful society, the pursuit of solutions (many of which can be trusted) is at the top of the agenda.
Energize your creativity. The variety of talent in this world is inspiring. Join the movement of imagination. Have you had an “aha!” moment whereby you came up with a solution (e.g., product, service, process)? It should be noted, many people find fulfillment in developing their creativity. Will you?
Align your resourcefulness. Resource management is a business tool for activities within public and private life. Indeed, a(n) individual, family or business does better when their money, supplies and other assets are applied to their most favorable use. Forethought and planning are keys to properly positioning your resources.
Think community. Working together are two action words that build unity. Further, the word synergy highlights how the wholesome use of power and strategic, momentous activity can be used to promote the greater good. According to Wikipedia, synergy is the creation of a whole that is greater than the simple sum of its parts. Make it your belief that doing your part as a respectful, law-abiding citizen serves the interest of the global community.
Lessons learned is a common product of uncertainty. Tools such as brainstorming and trial/error help people explore unchartered scenarios. With this in mind, change should be expected as life goes on. New and/or revived behaviors often occur when things change. For example and perhaps during the COVID-19 pandemic you will start discussing financial health regularly with your family. If you are a business owner, you may see clearer now how ongoing partnership with a(n) attorney, Certified Public Accountant, banker, insurance agent, etc. is important to business continuity. If you are a student, you may have to adapt to and make the best of distance learning. Many people are discussing the pandemic in pre-COVID-19 and post-COVID-19 terms. Determine how involved you will be in these conversations. Consider how knowledge of various concepts (e.g., life including business) can be used to develop a plan to mitigate the affects of uncertainty. Best wishes!
