Living with a Flexible Mindset

Imagine you were going to your favourite restaurant with friends.

You order your favourite dish and are waiting eagerly.

The dish arrives but isn’t as good as you thought, but your friends like it.

What would you do?

Would you still complain, or you accept the situation and eat what you have on your plate?

In most cases, we would accept that the chef had a bad day and eat your dish.

We become flexible because enjoying the company of friends is more important.

Now imagine it was a work situation and a coworker did not provide their work on time or per your expectations.

How flexible are we in such situations?

We usually complain about our coworkers but leave the restaurant chefs alone.

We become flexible in one situation and rigid in the other.

When it comes to people we know, we are anchored towards disappointments and cynicism but give others the benefit of the doubt.

What if we could change it all for a day?

What if we could live flexibly with everyone?

Flexibility can change perceptions and outcomes because people always remember how we make them feel.

A person who has behavioural flexibility can control the many aspects of the environment they are working in.

We always expect people to give us a second chance but rarely give them willingly.

Let’s start thinking about how we can change our mindset.

Let’s begin to think differently about flexibility.

Let’s start living with flexibility because everyone deserves a second chance.
