THE FOUR STRESSFUL “UNS” – Uncertain, Unclear, Unknown, Unexpected
Paddy Steinfort, a human performance coach, says the pressures of these times has him advising his clients on the “Uns.”
Here they are:
Makes sense doesn’t it?
We want to be certain about our situation.
We want to be clear about our future.
We want to know the rules and boundaries.
We get thrown out of whack when things we didn’t know we had to be concerned about pop up.
Here’s the issue: Any one of those “uns” could cause stress and disorientation. Put one, up to four of these in play at the same time, it can become a stress show that overwhelms.
So, what then?
Stress calls for mindfulness. Don’t let the “uns” wear you out or tear you down. In this company, you’re blessed to have teammates around you that can help improve things. Let’s work together to make sure the “uns” don’t do us in.
