Life: learning to dance in the rain

Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass. It’s about learning to dance in the rain
There are so many worries all around us. It’s easy to get overload by the doubts and the challenges that the external environment poses in front of us. It seems much easier to delay decisions; expecting that the clouds of uncertainties and the storm of challenges will pass by, leaving us in a much better and calm state to take decisions, to answer the difficult queries in our mind we have been avoiding for long and pick up the threads of life.
However, it doesn’t always happen like that. Often we find ourselves hit by a new storm, just as we are improving from one and jump from one state of doubt to another. Life is often an endless chain of chaos linked by a few indeterminate pauses.  “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass. It’s about learning to dance in the rain” – Vivian Greene
When one thinks of starting something, we often look for a stable, risk free environment, where we feel our actions will lead to the anticipated output with more faith. However, it’s very difficult to find the perfect time for starting up. Even, while in our life, we need to plan a new course, we often delay decision making. Maybe, the race is strong, with a major competitor. Problems can appear in many shapes and forms.

Sometimes, we hope, the problems will take care of themselves or will simply go away by us looking in the other direction. Or, we hope that one day when we wake up, there will be a clear sky, with a sign for us to move forward. Unfortunately, that’s not going to happen.

One thing, that almost all of us will agree upon is, that things are going to become more difficult in the coming days. Market conditions, Research & Development, new technology launches, get appointed in right organization are all going to become more difficult and definitely cost more in the future. So, if you have an idea, which you think, can change your life, there’s no better time to set cruise.

The right thing to do will be to let you adjust to the environment and be agile and responsive to changing dynamics in the world.
