You mentioned during one of our recent Future Proof Forums that you have identified 52 principles of reinvention. How did you come up with these?
– Karl B.
Back in early January 2001, our home with my home office burnt down due to an electrical fire in the walls of our 1940s Bauhaus residence. We lost much that we valued dearly, catapulting us into a 3yr journey to reclaim our lives…our home based businesses crashed and burned as a result.
Fighting our P&C insurers B.S. was the biggest challenge. To rush us into final negotiations, we were being moved to a new rental residence every few of months. It was breaking our spirit.
To give us a needed rest, we took a winter respite to Tucson AZ. My husband attended a major industry conference, while I spent my time taking in the desert beauty. All good medicine while I reflected on what was, what now, and what’s next.
As I sat with fingers poised on my laptop keyboard, I prayed and asked the Universe to send me a sign, share a message – provide anything to guide me as I began my reclamation. Before I knew it, my fingers were flying across my keyboard, pumping out what I now refer to as my “52 Principles of Reinvention” These these tenets or commandments anchored me as I returned to reframe, rebuild, and reinvent our tomorrow. Over the years, these 52 principles continue to be anchors during both good and disruptive times for all those I share them with… most especially right now in these VUCA times.
