These are times that no one will forget for generations to come. Though they are very painful, frustrating, confusing, and often times scary – these are the conditions of change. It takes immense pressure [and time] to make a diamond.
While our fight-or-flight instinct is strongly dialed toward fight – we feel that navigating change is similar to surfing. There is a time to paddle-out and there is a time to surf, but there is also a time in-between to float and assess. That “float time” as we call it, is crucial. It’s a time to rest from the paddle-out, it’s a time to survey the incoming waves, and very often it’s a time stop and reflect on where you are and why you are out there to begin with.
So wherever these times may find you, please take a moment to float – assess where you’ve been, where you are going, and where you are right now.
Be safe and be kind.
