After the initial shock and stress of the pandemic, it is time for us leaders to start engaging fully with the post-pandemic world—for there are tougher and hitherto unprecedented challenges on the near horizon. They cannot be ignored. The planet, and her people, cannot wait.
When we own stuff it means we are fully aware of the part we played in something happening or in a feeling we are experiencing – and we are brave and responsible enough to own it as something we created, or at least helped to create, and is therefore part of us.
This is particularly important when it comes to how we experience things. If we are fully response-able – the prerequisite of all leadership – we own our entire experience of anything and everything that happens. In this way we own all the ‘negative’ experiences as well as all the positive ones – we realise we are the creator of our own moods. The more we own our lives, the more we are empowered to create amazing experiences of our own whatever is going on, even relishing the beauty of a funeral or the fragile humanity of someone in pain.
A great life is simple (but by no means easy) – own everything and we get to enjoy or learn from it all.
