Rolling with the Spring Haze

If you read Taleb’s work (well worth it, by the way), you’ll notice that he recommends a bit of chaos and disorder in our lives. Working through it makes us stronger and more agile.

This week has seen the mild chaos of work inside the house, losing space, everything seemingly in a different place. And I ran five virtual sessions too…

I realised how much we do on autopilot; going to cupboards and shelves instinctively, to find nothing there.

Autopilot can be great for us, saving us time and energy for the harder things in life.

Now and again, it’s good to get a reminder of the importance of living in the moment, paying close attention to what we’re doing and how we make it work.

It’s all about rolling with the disruption and remembering how agile you were through it, so you can do it again next time.

This morning the sunshine led us to the beach, for a good walk where we watched the haze roll in from the Firth.

A calm end to a week of mild disorder.
