“When your old reality is gone for a time, it’s best to make a new one!” – Futurist Jim Carroll
What other choice do we have?
Reality has forever changed, and so it’s up to each and every one of us to somehow make the most of it.
I will admit I miss the stage, the travel, the audiences, the joy that comes from inspiring people. I miss the opportunity to really dig into the issues and trends that a particular client faces, and potential pathways forward. Heck, I miss the followup emails thanking me for my talk!
But that’s gone, and probably for quite some time. So I can’t wave a magic wand and make my go back there.
I can do the things that I can control – I can focus on what I will do today to get through the day, working to capture those moments when I can get a smile onto my face. To bring a smile to those in my small personal circle around me, and to the larger virtual circles in which I participate.
And I know I should do what I can to try to continually position myself for a better tomorrow despite massive uncertainty.
With that in mind, I extracted this image from a clip I filmed in the home broadcast studio yesterday in which I talk about these issues.
I’m going to post it shortly to my blog – I’d encourage you to watch it at https://jimcarroll.com/blog
Because…. In the clip I talk about how I had a small win!
In this new life I’m building, the wins come small and tiny, but any win is a win, and we’ll take them as they come!
Because to a degree, it’s all about redefining success in our new reality!
