Five keys to dealing with uncertainty

Five keys to dealing with uncertainty
  1. Recognize that there is only so much you can do right now, and that makes you human, not powerless.
  2. Envision the best, while being realistic. People tend to overestimate the risks and negative consequences and that leads to a lot of anxiety.
  3. You've faced uncertainty before. Take time to think and reflect on what helped you before.
  4. Although dealing with uncertainty is hard, there are consequences for not facing it head-on.
  5. See the Possibility.

Emotional intelligence when facing uncertainty
As we face uncertainty, our brains push us to overreact in a place where emotions, such as anxiety and fear, are generated. And these inhibit good decision-making.
Overriding this mechanism to shift this thinking in a rational direction requires emotional intelligence (EQ).

IDEAS

Manage uncertainty
  • Focus on the things you can control (and ignore those that you can’t)
  • Shift from External to Internal Locus of Control. It means you perceive yourself to have more control than the environment over your life.
  • Live your life as you would normally, independent of the uncertainty. 
  • Bring certainty to the important things (and let the other things go). 

Today's uncertainties

The technology and the Internet are making the world evolve at a dizzying rate. The time to live quietly, without changes and having everything under control at all times, is over.

You can live peacefully, but in order to accomplish it, you have to learn to accept and embrace all the uncertainty that surrounds you.
