Survival is our instinct. Ever since our ancestor’s saber-toothed tiger foe, the key to survival depends on how well we adapt to our external environment. It is as true now as then.
Many things we take for granted today are introduced in the last few decades: Twitter (2006), Facebook (2004), cellphone and internet (mid-90’s). And this trend continues. Drones, self driving cars, digital printers are jumping out of the scifi realm into the real world.
What it takes to survive today’s fast changing world is not a fight-or-flight response. Rather, how well we align our internal rhythms to the external environment is the key. Like the right tool enhances the job, the right fit improves the quality of our life.
Only you can tell what is appropriate to take and to leave. There is no be-all and end-all answer. But having one’s finger on the pulse allows one to be prepared for the changes, whatever they may be. Not only to survive but thrive.
Are you in tune with yourself, so to be prepared for change?
