COVID-19 outbreak and the risk associated with it freighted with anxiety and uncertainty, continuous lockdown, loss in business, a recession, salary cuts, a job loss, etc. We are in a situation where no one can guarantee how we will recover from this pandemic and how things would be when this is gone. COVID-19 has caught us in an unproductive uncertainty. But many of us can see their way with positivity in this crisis and find a positive path forward.
Evaluate all available options
Due to lockdown and unproductive uncertainty, we may find it hard to maintain the balance and become so focused on the current situation that we overlook the broader hopes. It won’t only cause uneasiness but can also lead us to make hasty decisions or abandon possibilities because we don’t even see them. In the psychological term, experts call this tendency to miss the bigger picture. Narrow thinking only leads us towards poor decision and management.
We must not only look to come out from the current crisis but look towards the future with a broader mindset and possibilities. With a broader mindset, we can overcome the COVID-19 trouble of unproductive uncertainty with greater optimism and patience.
Think in Terms of Probabilities
COVID-19 crisis, lockdown, and uncertainty, we often get stuck thinking extreme either/or outcomes. Experts who are capable of managing uncertainty, think in terms of probabilities instead. When we recognized the full range of potential outcomes and assigned probabilities to them, we saw things differently.
Be a Visionary
Possibilities always exist; a visionary leader sees the possibilities then takes steps to get there. Even, in this COVID-19 crisis business environment, we just have not to think of survival of this uncertainty but also focus on the ways and possibilities to grow and stand tall among all.
COVID-19 uncertainty has created a huge global crisis, It is sweeping through the world, putting nations, businesses, and societies under tremendous pressure. But, we humans are an optimistic lot! We know this unproductive uncertainty crisis will pass soon, maybe in a few months or maybe in a year of time, but it will pass. Our decisions would decide how you are going to survive from these crisis moments and how would be your position after the pandemic passes.
