Antifragile is my post Covid mantra…
I am beyond robust and resilient.
My newest reads and rabbit holes have taken me beyond resilience to the concept of 𝘢𝘯𝘵𝘪𝘧𝘳𝘢𝘨𝘪𝘭𝘦.
It's based off of my latest readings...Nassim Nicholas Taleb’s made up, created word, is about being MORE than robust and resilient.
I am a creature of habit. If you’ve been following along, you know I like to create habits for success so I can be ready for life’s adventure.
But Covid has taught me that the unknown, the disorder, the waiting, the changing landscape….is an opportunity to 𝐠𝐫𝐨𝐰, and 𝐭𝐡𝐫𝐢𝐯𝐞 , not just survive.
I am beyond resilient.
That’s the difference.
It means that something does not merely withstand a shock 𝘣𝘶𝘵 𝘢𝘤𝘵𝘶𝘢𝘭𝘭𝘺 𝘪𝘮𝘱𝘳𝘰𝘷𝘦𝘴 𝘣𝘦𝘤𝘢𝘶𝘴𝘦 𝘰𝘧 𝘪𝘵.
• Things, people, and organizations that break when they come under stress we call ‘fragile’
• Things, people, and organizations that do not break under stress we call ‘strong’, ‘robust’, or ‘resilient’
• Things, people, and organizations that actually become stronger under stress. Let’s call, “anti-fragile”

Are you just surviving?
How are you building up to take what comes at you?
Need to bend an ear, let me know.
