Life is too short for boring conversations.
Join us for Conversation Matters. We get you.
We’re facing enormous uncertainty and this comes with anxiety and fear
It seems we are all fighting valiantly for a sense of normalcy — hustling to move courses online, maintaining strict work schedules, creating Montessori schools at our kitchen tables. We hope to buckle down for a short stint until things get back to normal.
What I see behind this scramble for productivity is a perilous assumption. The answer to the question everyone is asking — "Is everything going to be okay?" — is simple and obvious, yet terribly hard to accept.
If we mean, "Is everything going to be the way it was and the way I expected it to be?" then the answer is no. The answer to that question is always no, it always has been.
If we mean, "Is everything going to be the way it is going to be?" then the answer is yes. Of course. If we define whatever happens as okay, then everything will be.
The good news is, this allows us to focus on THAT WHICH MATTERS.
"What are we going to do about it?"
REMEMBERING MATTERS. LISTENING MATTERS. CONVERSATION MATTERS.
