We are in the midst of a pandemic, social isolation, acquaintances, loved ones or sick family members. Work demanding higher performance than before. Demands at home, with a partner, children, pets, etc. My God, how much !!
At this moment, we analyze how much capacity we have to adapt. The most skeptical realized that it is possible to change behavior and yes, work from home! Workaholics have realized that they can work from home, and they may be working harder than before. We also have that group of people who realized that they can enjoy this moment and finally do things differently, or as they always wanted to, but always postponed. Moment of joining the useful (working) with the pleasant (working at home). In my daily appointments, I realize that there are people currently stressed by the growing demands of the moment.
And there comes the concept of two interesting words, which we must analyze.
Resilience, a term initially used in physics, which means the ability of a material to return to its previous state after an elastic deformation. Then we think: are we resilient? But of course it is, and a lot. How much can we have an argument with someone and then get back to the state of mind before the discussion? How much can we come and go in our spirits over the course of a day? If you have that ability, you are resilient.
There is also another term that is widely used today and that describes how many successful people have led their lives. This is antifragility. What is that? It is the capacity to suffer a “deformation” and to emerge strengthened from it. Let’s take as an example a person who was fired because of the current circumstances. This person “takes the strike”, suffers and decides that he is going to make this lemon a lemonade. What does she do? He is strengthened by what happened, he decides to undertake and today he is a more successful, less stressed and more fulfilled professional. What happened to this person? She “suffered the blow” and came out of it better than she came in. This is an anti-fragile person.
May we have serenity and the ability to assume our antifragility nowadays !!
