Market crash? Coronavirus? A new boss? We got you covered 💥

reinvention strategy Mar 03, 2020

We barely made it through 2 months of the New Year, and so far we've:

  • Faced a possibility of World War III,
  • Survived bushfires of a massive scale,
  • Witnessed a new wave of business bankruptcies and layoffs (hello, Pier 1 and HSBC!),
  • Watched a first market crush of the new decade, and
  • Discovered that Coronavirus has nothing to do with the beer.

It's safe to say that disruptions are here to stay - not as a one-time event, a project we can manage and move on - but as a new standard feature of our modern world.

Now, what are we to do to get ourselves comfortable with this ever-growing uncertainty and volatility?

Here are four places to start:

#1: First and foremost, it's about getting ourselves used to discomfort and experimentation. 

Talking to people you don't normally talk to, read news from new sources you don't normally read, get to places you don't usually show up at. 

Make it a part of your weekly routine - and challenge your community to do the same.

#2: Make sure you have people you can rely on amidst the turbulence.

Friendships don't show up overnight and community-building at home and at work takes time.

Create a Reinvention Society in your city, get regular virtual coffee on your schedule with people who might have supported you accidentally in the past, make people gather around your table on a regular basis.

I promise you, it pays off.

#3: Learn how to learn, unlearn, and re-learn faster and better than ever before.

Resilience and reinvention are not biological traits given to lucky few - but muscles that can be built by anyone. Learning how to unlearn and re-learn is part of the mastery - so choose something to learn now and go at it.

#4: Take rest and recharge seriously.

If you want to drive change like a bad-ass, rest is no longer optional. Disruption is not a one-time sprint we need to survive - it's an ever-evolving marathon we can win. But rest and recharge are required to make that happen.

Now, your turn. Which one of these 4 strategies will you start with TODAY?
