When things go wrong, off-rail, poorly or ‘less-well’ than expected – the world doesn’t come to an end.
That’s when things get really interesting.
Our brains and bodies adrenalin-hyped, our reactions take over and whatever was going on in our life that day slide way down the priority list. What is important is the catastrophe – and for a few hours, days or weeks, everything else is set aside.
Is that setting-aside action something we should do with things under ordinary circumstances when there is no catastrophe, when is it just time to set something aside and leave it be? Sometimes we’ll come back to it with fresh idea, fresh ideas – or a fresh approach to getting rid of it completely.
