Charles Darwin once said that it’s not the strongest or most intelligent that survives but those who are most adaptable to change.
Social Media has become a huge part of our everyday lives. But at some point there was this huge concern & fuss about time spent on social media sites and it eating away face-to-face time, a phenomenon then termed as social displacement. Cut to today where social distancing has become key to human survival with social media playing a significant role in keeping us all connected, informed and motivated.
Point is Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. These changes can come into our lives as result of a crisis, or choice or just by chance. What is true today may not be so tomorrow, as most truths are context-dependent. Problems arise when we stay hardwired to our own truths, irrespective of change in context.
Classic example of this can be seen in some large Organizations and family run businesses where the internal policies earlier did not support remote working, virtual conferencing or flexible work hours. But in the past 4 months these organizations have been propelled into digital age. Made to not tweak, but rethink their business models to survive & thrive in the new normal forced by the pandemic.
Well, more often we talk about letting go of the things we can’t change or control. But question is how to let go of the truths when the context changes? How to become more agile? quickly adapt and evolve in response to the changing circumstances.
