A very practical approach to becoming antifragile

A set of tools for bicycle maintenance

Becoming ‘antifragile‘ might seem a little strange, a bit theoretical even, but the seven steps that we will take to reach it are all very practical.

So if you want to become antifragile, don’t just read these blogs.

You do not learn to swim by reading a book about swimming and the same applies to becoming antifragile: you also have to practise.

The book provides a series of tools and exercises that work, step by step, to help you do that practice. These blogs will show you some of them. And the way you strengthen your abilities at the seven competencies of antifragile Inner Leadership is by practising.

You can’t learn to play a musical instrument if you don’t practise. You can’t get better at sports unless you practise. You won’t become antifragile if you don’t practise.

Some of the tools shared here will be more obviously relevant for the challenges you are facing right now. But they are all connected and they all build towards what comes next in the process, so we recommend you try them all.

To make this easier, Inner Leadership comes with a free downloadable workbook (details in the book). Or you can purchase a large format paperback workbook. Or you can simply use your own pen and paper.

But please do practice the exercises because, as every musician knows, the only way to get to Carnegie Hall is through practice, practice, practice.

Inner Leadership and these blogs will provide a series of very practical tools that will help you define what ‘Carnegie Hall’ looks like for you and do the practice that will get you there. But you won’t get there if you don’t do the work.

Do you know what your equivalent of Carnegie Hall looks like? Are you willing to practice the skills that will inspire you and others to take you there?
