Have you ever left a training session only to have difficulty recalling what was said? How about, going to the kitchen, standing dumbfounded wondering what you were looking for? (no names will be mentioned to protect the innocent) It is accurate to suggest that our memory needs to be used effectively to serve us well!
Having said that, I’m going to challenge you, to make the most of your experiences during this period of isolation. Let’s make a deliberate attempt to recall and process what has been learned, or many positive experiences will have been forgotten…and that will be unfortunate!
Similarly, Socrates, an ancient Greek philosopher, who was wise, but not a virtuous type of fellow, was quoted as saying, that “the unexamined life is not worth living”. This strong statement suggests that we need to be introspective about our lives to improve and make the most of our collective experiences.
How you go about sifting through this process will vary, but what matters is building on the positive experiences.
So, let’s not go back to the kitchen and forget why we were there, not only because it gets embarrassing, but to ensure we take steps to incorporate what was learned from the Pandemic and apply it to your personal/business lives.
