Creatively Use and Respond to Change:

Jun 2, 2021 | Blog | 0 comments

 We can have a positive impact on in- evitable change by carefully observing, and then intervening at the right time.

Change happens.  It’s up to us to decide how we’re going to respond to it. To remain firmly fixed, in the face of change, can be difficult and ultimately lead to stress and a breakdown of vitality and effectiveness. To be flexible in life and business is considered wise and helps keep oneself healthfully alert to opportunities. To courageously cultivate and direct the movement of those changes, and put them to work for us, leads to mastery and keeps one thriving.

Our entire planetary population has undergone an impressive shift in recent months, thanks in part to the Covid-19 pandemic. Businesses that have adapted quickly and moved their focus to online sales, education, and services will be shown to be those who have earned greater security, resilience, and dynamic sufficiency.

  • When you find yourself about to throw something in the trash, give thought as to whether it could be upcycled for another purpose. Ideas for innovative reuse of generally discarded items are all over the internet. Just  search “Upcycle (fill in the blank).”  Try it for old shoes, toilet paper rolls, jeans, pens, etc.   The practice might bring you some surprising ideas.
  • If you’re out  of work,  consider:

        -Studying any one of the many opportunities that exist for online                         work or entrepreneurship.
       -Use the time off to create a new workout or mindfulness practice.
       -Begin new family bonding rituals.
       -Use the time off to create a new workout or mindfulness practice.
       -Begin new family bonding rituals.

  • When a change affecting you affects a broad number of people (resulting from a pandemic, for instance), get involved with or create brainstorming meetups or masterminds to come up with creative solutions together.
