What to Do When You Don't Know What to DoApr 06, 2020
Human beings are fascinating.
No creature on the planet is better equipped to connect and work through challenges or make things better. We are inherently curious, social, creative, and aspirational beings.
At the same time, when we can, we settle for the status quo. We are comforted by knowing where we stand and what's expected. More often than not, we're happy to settle for the way things are and the way we are.
But sometimes events conspire to make the status quo obsolete. Sometimes settling for another day just like yesterday is not an option.
In a moment like this, you have a choice. Sit and wait for things to sort themselves out or for someone to sort them out for you. Or seize the moment. Decide to take the initiative to find the others and endeavor to make things better.
If we choose the latter, we become agents of our destiny rather than passive recipients of our fate.
When we get together and lean into challenges with intention and integrity, we create the possibility of exiting difficult circumstances better than how we entered them.
But where to start?
Start where you are, with who's around you, and with what you have. Together, set a goal and a strategy to get you there. Commit to showing up to do the work in front of you deliberately and daily. Do this with and for each other.
Who can you convene, and what can you initiate today that will help make things better?
Let's endeavor better together.
