Philosopher Heraclitus said, “the only thing that is constant is change.” Indeed, the last several years have witnessed change happening at an incredible speed.
Change is often coupled with uncertainty, which can be disconcerting. Feeling unsettled is based at least in part on our fear of losing or having little control. And while there are things in life we don’t have a direct say over, it’s equally true that we’re not powerless.
In fact, there is something we can do to feel in greater control of our lives: being prepared. Being prepared in a combination of having the right mindset and taking the right actions.
To do that:
- Think ahead about what needs to be taken care of.
- Be proactive instead of hoping things will somehow work out on their own.
- Invest your time and energy in the right things.
- When making decisions, keep your loved ones and close friends in mind.
