Confusion Can be a Moving Target – So Now What?

Comfort Zone“It is difficulties that show what men are.” – Epictetus (55AD-135AD) Greek philosopher

Dramatic transitions that occur beyond our control can stir up emotions of fear, doubt, anxiety and uncertainty. Changes persuade us to move in new directions, yet there is hesitancy to risk moving forward into the unknown. The change may even be a welcomed change.

But our comfort zones are strong allies in maintaining the status quo. The past, even though it is gone, is where most people live; using it to make assumptions about the future. The future is unpredictable. Now what?

All of a sudden the events we took for granted are no longer there to hang onto. The change agent keeps circling in our heads reminding us that what was no longer exists. It is time to change.

But change to what? Change to where? Change with whom?

There are so many unanswered questions and uncertainties spinning around in our heads.

One decision after another turns into fickle commitments because who’s to say that the change will be better than what was? We question every option using the past as a reference to make a decision. The past is running the future.
