This time of change is bringing us opportunities as well as problems. But even when we learn to see those opportunities clearly, the uncertainty of a changing world means that we can still feel unsure about how best to move forward.
“If you don’t know where you want to get to, all directions will seem equally relevant.”
Several tools of Inner Leadership help us to build clarity around where we most want to get to, who we most want to become:
- The tools of Chapter 1 enable us to centre and ground, connecting us more strongly with who we are and what matters most to us
- The tools of Chapters 2 and 3 help us to make clearer sense of the situation and identify more alternatives for action, both of which bring opportunities to notice what we feel drawn towards and what we don’t
- Chapter 5 uncovers our purpose and values, which bring long-term guidance and direction to any situation
- Chapter 6 enables us to explore and articulate what most inspires us
- And the tools of Chapter 4 explicitly help us to define the future we want to create
In this time of churning, all ways forward are likely to seem difficult or uncertain.
This is another step towards becoming antifragile.
Have you ever struggled to choose a way forward? Was it because you weren’t really clear who you wanted to become or which direction would take you there? Do you want to create that clarity?
