Finding new rhythms in life takes time. Some of us like planning every step, every detail and then sticking to it. Others prefer more of an organic or emergent view – just live and let the rhythms find you. And still others like some combination of the two. And most of us have different approaches depending on what rhythm we are thinking about.
And so it goes with change, with leading team, with being a family. Different approaches, preferences. If we can see them as that rather than right and wrong, we might be able to engage more. However, weirdly to ‘see’ we need another sense as we need to ‘listen’. Not judge, listen. Not try to convert another to our way, just listen.
It’s not easy, but we can do a little better today than we did yesterday. Drip by drip by drip.
