We humans are incredibly adaptable. Neuroscience has shown us that with willingness and effort we are able to adapt to any situation and in the process build knew neural pathways which allow us to keep operating in a different way.
However, there is a downside. As this new pattern of behaviour becomes embedded we may not realise that the environment around us has changed and that the new way of operating doesn't serve us anymore.
This is particularly evident during times of crisis or during patches of high intensity work. For example, we become used to simply responding to the crisis on a day by day basis without pausing and thinking about the longer term implications of what's going on.
In this video we explore this concept further and provide three practical strategies to help you shift your mindset.
