“Backup is my computer’s shepherd, My data shall not want. It lets me download software with good pleasure, knowing my data is untroubled like still waters. It restores my system, It lets me surf the paths of cyberspace for information’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the Silicon Valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: For my backup system is on standby, My backup software and online backup, they comfort me. They prepare me a fresh backup in the presence of mine enemies, They anoint my head with peace, my cpu runneth over. Surely goodness and security shall follow my data all the days of my life, and my data will continue to live on forever.”T.E. Ronneberg
What has COVID-19 taught you about chaos? Practicing skills to reframe chaos is always a good practice because where you are today in life comes from all the chaotic choices and decisions you previously made. COVID-19 has undoubtedly upgraded the world to a new level of virtual reality and adaptability. There is no going back, only forward. Great for those who have adapted along the way; terrible for those who have no desire to learn new things and insist on keeping things “as they are” or were. Choosing to change is more comfortable than being forced to change. Now, with virtually everything online, there is more opportunity, both positive and negative. Being comfortable with ambiguity can be practiced simply by choosing each day to do one thing that scares you because it requires you to step out of your comfort zone, which can feel a bit chaotic. Remember that you are a human being in the chaos of life.
