That’s what Jerry Colonna told me when I asked him what to do with all the fear and uncertainty going on right now with the market collapse and the COVID-19 pandemic.
Not very uplifting. At least, not at first glance.
But the truth is, this conversation with Jerry was not about convenient lies and magic pills. It’s about deep truth and deep wisdom. The world is the way it is. Now, what are we going to do with it?
Jerry’s profound insights are equally at home in the business world, the work of financial advisors, and everyday humans trying to make sense out of an unsettling and sometimes terrifying world.
As Jerry tells me, “All things are changing all the time. And so, the best you can do is to internalize the fact that the plans you create—whether it’s for the homeschool plan tomorrow or for your retirement plan—are a best guess. And then you have to relax your grip around that, and realize that you’re always shifting.”
You can find all of that, and much much more, in the video below.
But before you dig in, consider making a quick detour and learn about Jerry’s inspiring coaching company, Reboot, which believes that “Work doesn’t have to destroy us. Work can be the way we achieve our fullest selves.” While you’re there, be sure to take a look at his incredible new book.
And don’t forget to check out the show notes below. You’ll see I’ve cross-referenced some of the highlights of our conversation with corresponding declarations from my latest project—The Fellowship. That’s because (surprise, surprise) a lot of Jerry’s insight ties directly back to things we talk about in The Fellowship.
