First, we acknowledge that we will face challenges as we navigate our way through this. Expecting to do this with ease is not realistic.

Second, after we get clearer about our path forward, we hold this path lightly – evolving and adapting what we do in response to the changes we see around us.

Third, as we move down this path, we stop and find that place of stillness that exists within us. This supports us to find our true north, our anchor, in challenging and uncertain times. F

Fourth, we act as mindfully as we can. Being present to what is happening, being here in this moment – and the next one – enables us to see a more accurate version of the world around us. This helps us to make better decisions, so we swim with the current rather than against it.

And finally, we relate to ourselves, and to other people, with the greatest generosity we are capable of; as we appreciate and open to new and different ways of doing things.

This willingness to see the good in ourselves and others and to appreciate what is – may be the game-changer. For our willingness to do this reflects – and enhances – our belief in our ability to influence the outcomes around us, which is so much harder in times of uncertainty

At The Alternative Board, our business owners meet together regularly. And when we do, we share our best understanding of what is happening. And as we see more, and learn more, we course-correct. And then we course-correct again. And again…

If you are struggling to identify the best path forward, please call us to see how we can help you navigate through these uncertain times.
