How To Survive And Thrive During Times Of Crisis. Disruptive Innovation

You cannot deny that 2020 is far from what we had planned/anticipated it to be. It may not be better or worse but definitely different.

While many were asking how best to survive during the crisis, creators were looking at how best to thrive.

I am convinced that we will see a few disruptors merging as we come out the other end.

Meanwhile, as we forge a new reality, I keep asking myself, how will we move forward? Both as individual as well as collective.

What can I/we get rid of and what should I/we keep?

Do my beliefs and conditioning still apply in the new reality?

What do I really want?

It is apparent that before the dust settles, we need to rethink and create how we want things to be.

The opportunity we have been presented with is that we can no longer resist change. If we’re resistant before, we now have no excuse. The one who will adopt or innovate during this disruption will create a new reality. This we all can do depending on our desire.

Someone once said we need to be appreciative of where we are at before we get to where we want to get to.

Lately, I have caught myself reflecting on a few things but most importantly what I appreciate about my life to date, What do I want to take forward into my new reality?!

  1. What is my purpose?

  2. Who do I want to become?

  3. Do I want to travel for work or can I work from home?

What could I do to achieve ABC?! Who do I know….!

This process opened up an avalanche of ideas. I encourage you to try it.

I suspect collaboration will be the new orange. People coming together, bootstrapping in order to bring their ideas to life.

“I'm afraid of losing my obscurity. Genuineness only thrives in the dark. Like celery.” Aldous Huxley

Self-evaluating, looking at what you want to keep and incorporate in our new reality is what will actually birth in the new reality.

While the media preach how unprecedented this is, how about we switch that around and appreciate what an opportunity we have been presented with that may never happen again in our lifetime.

Call me optimistic but I rather that we are optimistic than losing hope or should I say handing our powers to others to decide for us.

I would love to hear your ideas and how you’re thriving the current disruption.

Stay intentional.
