Resilience and change

Resilience and change

You can only build resilience by accepting that everything will one day fail. The more ready you are to pivot when it does, the sooner you’ll see big changes coming, the better you’ll react to them when they arrive, and the faster you’ll get back to business-as-usual once they hit.

  • To build a resilient business, be okay knowing that what works now will eventually not work and that you’ll have to evolve and change to stay afloat.
  • For stronger relationships, don’t cling to how strong they are now.  
  • To create a resilient identity, don’t define yourself by who you are today, but by your commitment to always improve yourself. 




The Repeated Bout Effect

The more you repeat a behavior, the less it impacts you because you become accustomed to it.

Examples Of The Repeated Bout Effect

  • When you haven't done much strength training, doing 30 pushups will make you stronger. But after a few months, an extra of 30 pushups isn't really building new muscle.

  • Deliberate practice is critical to long-term success. Doing the same type of work over and over again is a strange form of laziness.

  • You tend to exaggerate when you show people the value you place on them.
  • This anxiety might not be attractive to people that don't have the same attachment style.


  • This could be you if you put your independence above all.
  • You tend to think less of others.
  • You carefully guard your emotions and try at all costs to keep away from rejection.
  • You're more likely to connect with people who express the anxious-preoccupied type because they’re more likely to accept the power imbalance.

You get to know yourself

When you're by yourself, you make choices without outside influences. Making choices on your own will help you develop better insight into who you are as a person.

Improve your relationships

Spending time with friends, family and colleagues contributes to a "we vs. them" mentality. 

Spending time alone breaks down those barriers. Studies show you'll develop more compassion for other people when you set aside time for solitude.

Solitude boosts creativity and productivity

There's a reason artists, musicians, and authors seek solitude when they want to create something. Studies confirm that being alone often fosters creativity.

In addition to boosting creativity, solitude also skyrockets productivity
