Feeling Grounded in the Midst of Spiraling Changes

As much as you’ve seen unfold this month already, this is still the early game for the virus, so there will be even more changes coming up quickly. The last 10 days of the month could be even bigger than the first 21. With so much uncertainty, how can you still feel grounded? Is that…

Zones of Clarity

There are multiple zones of clarity. Let’s consider them. First, there’s clarity with yourself – clarity about who you are, what you are, and about your skills and capabilities.
