When you have to get back into a routine
I listened to this while writing this post, try it while you read :o)
This post is the second of a series of ten posts about certain aspects of our lives during the COVID-19 crisis. These posts must be read in order, starting with the 6th post would make absolutely no sense to the reader. Enjoy reading and above all, enjoy reflecting.
Let’s go back to our example of a group effect. This gentle breeze which carried with it a feeling of unease. You may have ignored these early signs. If so, your senses are either not sharp enough or you unconsciously ignored them. It is normal not to want to pay attention to certain crisis signals, perhaps it will pass without me being interested, why bother worrying about it after all? Someone will surely take care of it. The strategy of burying your head in the sand can be useful if the crisis is effectively unfounded or if it won’t affect you, but it can also make you lose precious hours of preparation and soften your crisis management curve.
One thing is certain, in my humble opinion, is that this strategy must have paid off in the past because it is very often used in various situations. A crime is committed around you, you weakly witness it, you choose to look away and continue on your way, telling yourself that someone else must be a better witness than you. The point here is not that we don’t have courage in the face of life, but that we don’t have courage in the face of the group.
To be continued tomorrow…
