Vodcast #018 - Adaptability by Sunaina Vij
Crucial Post-pandemic Skill
Adaptability becomes an essential skill to survive now.
In fact, if you look closer, for example, there is climate change. You will realize It is actually more than a skill, but an attitude. Whether we have this attitude to cope with changes will seriously affect our quality of life.
Therefore, a question Sunaina often came across is - can humans learn to adapt quickly?
The answer is YES. By working on our beliefs & self-awareness, preparing ourselves to embrace changes, we can definitely become more adaptable. When we are mentally prepared, we can expect certain outcomes to happen.
Now, on a scale of 1 to 10 from low to high, how would you rate your adaptability?
