Increase your Capacity
Healthy eating, exercise and sleep are often the first to be forgotten about in times of stress. Don't forget to take care of your physical, mental and emotional health in order to increase your capacity to deal with uncertainty. Plan exercise into your schedule, dedicate time away from technology, and plan your meals ahead of time.
Improve your Flexibility
Consider your best and worst case scenarios, and how you will deal with each situation, should it occur. While it's stressful to think about things going wrong, knowing how you can deal with it will allow you to be proactive when needed and be a driving force in your own life.
Master New Skills
What skills do you want to become masterful at? When faced with a challenging situation in your life, choose 2-3 things that you will become masterful at. Then dedicate time consistently to mastering those skillsets as you’re going through that challenge. Building this into your life can help you feel unstoppable, because even in the most challenging of situations, you know you are benefiting rather than suffering from it.
Nurture your Creativity
All growth occurs outside of your comfort zone. It’s also where creativity & innovation lives. Finding time for creative & innovative thinking is vital during these times of uncertainty, because in order to adapt and overcome the challenges you’re facing, you need a solution that you are yet to come up with… if you had the solution already, you wouldn’t have the problem. To do this, dedicate time in your calendar each week specifically for creativity & innovation.
Track your Progress
Tracking your progress helps to give objective feedback into how on or off track you are to achieving your goals. This is especially important during times of great change, because in order to avoid getting too far off track, there will be times that you will need to tweak or transform your actions & overarching strategy.
With this advice in place, you should feel much better equipped to deal with any challenges that come your way, regardless of how big or small they are!
