Going with the flow doesn’t mean taking a passive approach. Rather, it's about letting go of what could or should happen, and instead adapting to changes and challenges with ease. The mindset that there is only one right way to do things adds an unnecessary layer of stress to your work and will often limit you from discovering a game-changing idea or brilliant solution. In this episode, we talk about how learning to go with the flow has made our work more flexible and fruitful.
How often does it actually serve us to have our expectations set in stone? Even when the circumstances of a project change, the work still needs to be done. This is where “going with the flow” comes in. Instead of becoming mentally invested in things happening a certain way, it takes a lot less energy to focus on the things that can be controlled.
Even when a process is rigid, adaptability still plays a major role in the end result. Sure, this mindset takes bravery and a dash of risk-tolerance, but you might find there’s an opportunity for more creativity when going with the flow. This week, we talk about letting go of strict expectations and seizing the unexpected opportunities that come our way.
