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…
