We live in faced paced times, where things are constantly changing.
The constraints that are always in place (currently exacerbated due to the COVID-19 lockdown) means that we must continuously adapt. Adapt the way we work, connect, direct our energy and contribute.
We can only really guess at the impact of our actions on the future. We don’t know what tomorrow will bring. Yet, we try so hard to control the outcome and to predict what will happen next. When things don’t go the way we want, we worry and fret.
We put so much effort into controlling every single element, that we turn ourselves into an anxious mess.
We must learn to embrace ambiguity.
By accepting ambiguity and embracing it as a friend, rather than a foe, we can learn to put less pressure on ourselves to always have a plan. It might encourage us to be a little more spontaneous. Or to leverage the uncertainty to pivot and take a more unconventional approach.
Instead of worrying about the future, bring your attention to what’s in front of you.
