“Välkomna oväntade händelser, ta vara på slumpen”
Is it that most of the time when something unexpected happens, we get stressed and don’t really like the idea that things suddenly changed. It happened so often to me, couple of times daily during my working years. I’m a planner and to be thrown off track was never comfortable. Mostly because we where always work against the clock, quality and guest.
But the last 10 years I learned how to handle it when it happen, it is not really the end of the world – and I also learned how to take advantages of the event and turn it into something positive. I must admit it doesn’t work every time.
Maybe the saying – the older we get the wiser we get too – is true, but I’m not all that convinced. On the other hand do I have loads of common sense.
I love to plan and I’m pretty good to keep to the plans I made – every time I think it’s the best plan laid, but there is always happening something.
I’m a very good organizer when needed to – but otherwise I’m all over the place, many things going on at the same time. Jumping back and forward with them.
After my retirement I’m so much more easy going – if my plan doesn’t work – not the end of the world, I just take it from the event and carry on.
Somebody has said, that when the devil becomes old she becomes religious – I think this very close to the truth about me.
To be able to turn the unexpected into an advantage isn’t the easiest thing to do.
That is why I need to have a couple of impulsive friends.
Then when it’s about love – just bring on the unexpected, there I’m the opposite.
