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 seventh 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.
After this shock, the shock of revelation, our scope for action will be substantial. If we adopt a binary position, white or black, we will lean towards more radical, more permanent actions. But if we are rather ambivalent, we will always have two plans rather than one and these plans will be more moderate. Considering several possible avenues protects us from the systematic rejection of another scenario. Rejection requires energy, so ultimately, it is wasted energy that could have instead been used to build a second answer to our dilemma.
This is how we can already prepare our response to such a crisis. A binary vision of the world will always tend to create a bigger shock. This position is too rigid, although it offers the power of enthusiasm and conviction, it lacks agility in a rapidly-changing context. A more flexible position will offer a more moderate response and a smaller shock. Envisaging a changing world offers up a tolerance for surprises.
Too much shock will also have its consequences. Our mind does not like to be caught off guard and it will learn from this situation. The consequences, though numerous, will rarely be beneficial.
To be continued tomorrow…
