We've all done it, prepared the resume either physically (new job) or mentally (just before giving advice to a friend). We felt confident that we would give sound advice or perspective. However, when personal or business paths become stagnant or turbulent, are we open to new ideas or do we just recycle the same strategies and/or take the same approach to obtaining solutions? If the latter is true for you, then you may need to deduct the amount of years' experience you've placed on your resume, mentally and physically.
Sometimes we not only need new solutions, but innovative or progressive ways of obtaining that solution.
Being open to alternative ways of doing and believing requires actively turning off some of our automatic thoughts about how we've always done things and often that mentality that 'experience knows best'. It may even mean going back to dismantle childhood belief systems that we've picked up through experience or from our family traditions. The world has surpassed the point of 'accepting' creativity and nuance, it is expecting and embracing it as a means of catapulting us into a new future.
As parents, community members, and leaders how do we embrace change and innovative ways of being and doing? 2021 is the perfect time to quit the old practice of intellectual laziness and start evaluating, thinking, and forming our own beliefs and ways of being.
