Reflections on how we draw new ways of being from the situation. I wonder whether you, like me, have been so busy that you have fallen into the habit of being driven by your work rather than driving your work. Have we dedicated all our ‘quality’ work time to serve the never ending ‘to do’ list and the full diary? Have we lost the possibility, or the idea of the possibility, that we could actually choose to do something that is a ‘pro-action’ not a reaction? COVID-19 is unexpected and unwanted. Many of us are reflecting on how we draw new ways of being from the situation.

I have been reflecting on time and choice. Of course, some are even more challenged for time now yet maybe there is something in this shared reflection for them too. Surely making time choices is a life skill which will serve us well in any future situation. As I master my new normal.  I find I have some unaccounted-for time. Just enough to take on work that I would normally ‘think’ about rather than ‘do’. Did you see this on social media? ‘I always thought that I didn’t do housework because I didn’t have time – now I know it’s because I don’t have the motivation’. 😊

What is your motivation as a change management professional? In your previous normal what would you have done if only you had time? If you now have time, what do you still want to do? Why? As you explore the answers to these questions. Be kind to yourself. This is a change and we know change challenges brains.
Share your pro-action activities and why you chose them – exciting for me, for you and the profession.
