If you haven’t noticed…..we are in period of accelerated change. Technology, ways of thinking and doing business, climate, community attitudes. Of course, change is a constant but there is more changing at the moment. Companies are spending less on conferences and training. They want things done quicker and more cheaply. They want more done with less. Multitasking ,though counter productive ,is encouraged. Stress is normal.
There are two ways to behave in this situation.
Sit and wait to see which way the world turns. See how the masses behave and follow them. Wait until the day before the election to decide. Let the people in charge take control of you and your life.
Take advantage of the slowing of the community and work hard on what you want. Take advantage of the situation. If you don’t know what you want. Figure out what you do know and go with that. Maybe you don’t like your job. So you know what you don’t want. That’s enough to get started. If you came up to a T junction and didn’t know which direction to take, sitting in the middle of the road will only hamper others. Take time out to reflect on what matters to you, decide on your really important values, what do you want to achieve. If a lot of people are stalled and waiting, there will be more opportunities for those who know what they want. You’d let someone get ahead of you in a queue if you will still deciding on what you wanted. Find a friend who listens and ask them to listen. Invent your own questions. What do you want to achieve? Who do you want to become? What do you want said at your eulogy ?
There is a seismic shift in progress. Just look around. Be part of it rather than a passive observer. Remember the saying ‘There’s them that make things happen, watch things happens and wonder what happened.” Take your pick.
