How to Be Prepared For The Unexpected
To say that this year has been totally unexpected would be a mild understatement.
Art Girls Jungle 31 Aug 2020

To say that this year has been totally unexpected would be a mild understatement. It feels like you can’t plan anything anymore and if you can plan something, chances are it will be online. Many of us are finding coping mechanisms for dealing with this permanent state of uncertainty. But there are actually a few things that you can do so that you are prepared for the next time something unexpected pops up. Want to know how? Read on!

Be Calm

It may sound stupid, but remaining calm is important. If you are in a panic, you are more likely to jump to conclusions without thinking them through first. Although it isn’t easy, staying cool and relaxed will really help you when the world is turning upside down.

Cultivate A Broad Network

While you may be tempted to only network with people in your field, it’s a good idea to get contacts across a broad spectrum of sectors. This way, you will have loads of people on hand should you need them during uncertain times. 

Stay In Touch

Just as important as having a big network, is keeping in touch with them. Email your contacts and see how they’re doing, check in on them. That small act of kindness could really help you in the future. 

Keep Learning

There is no such thing as too much knowledge. By taking an online course or going to that one Zoom lecture, you could be seriously broadening your horizons. 

Create A Back-Up Plan

It’s always good to have a plan B. Even if you don’t ever use it, it’s good to know that you have options. Take this time to consider what you might do should you ever find yourself in this situation again. (Although we’re sure hoping that this is a one-time thing!)

Be Self-Empowered

Self-belief is so important during times of stress and uncertainty. Believe in yourself and you will succeed. You are truly unique and no matter what happens, you’ll make it through. You got this!
