The global pandemic and the Black Lives Matter movement are creating major disruptions in our lives. Whatever our nationality, colour, gender and class we are being called to challenge many of our long-held beliefs, unconscious biases and working practices. Our very understanding of knowledge and certainty are being turned on their heads.
From my schoolgirl science classes (yes I have a long memory) I recall the disruption that Copernicus created in challenging the orthodoxy of his time. He proved that the earth revolves around the sun, not the other way round.
Like Copernicus if we want to make changes we have to challenge the orthodoxy or status quo and that starts with our own comfort levels.
In an earlier article I suggest taking some steps to notice, prepare and get support when you are trying to make changes in your professional or personal life.
What is the first step you can take?
