Agilism = an integrated approach to mindful lifestyle design
- I'm convinced there's a direct correlation between mental wellbeing and our ability to handle change, transition, reinvention, and uncertainty.
- As the world becomes more complex and unpredictable, not having the right mental tools and mindset can lead us to become anxious about the future. It's also harder to recover from a setback.
- Having the right skills and mindset is critical.
I've been lucky enough to see a lot of the world. Seeing how people interact with other cultures gave me unique insights into how people behave in environments that are unfamiliar to them. Some people thrive in these environments of uncertainty and ambiguity. I've seen others escape into their own little silos to be with people similar to them.
- We must learn to recover must faster. I've also been blessed to have first-hand experience of the startup world - a universe that is rife with change and transition. I've failed on numerous occasions and I've seen others 'bounce back' from failure. But I've also seen how some founders find it difficult to reinvent themselves after a success. Some struggle to find that 'second home run.'
- This really matters! Dealing with change and uncertainty can have an effect on our relationships with friends, family, colleagues, and loved ones. They can have a disastrous impact on our career and finances. And the older we get, the harder it is to deal with change. All this can have an effect on our mental stability and emotional intelligence unless we know how to play by different rules and adapt a different mindset.
