Learnings from an enforced pause

Funny how I talk about seasons and cycles and rest; and then Covid hit me. Yes as it becomes endemic. And with this enforced pause that took place right after a vacation and whilst I was almost jumping back into work, I had the chance to reflect on more of life, work and rest. And here are some of my random learning:

  1. Our attention matters a lot. When our attention is not present, we simply miss the moment.
  2. When we develop a plan, perhaps it is more important to note down our intentions rather than how exactly we want things to be.
  3. Make room for serendipity – it gives an addition meaning to the notion that opportunity favours the prepared.

Maybe I should have more pauses in my life – certainly not one forced by an illness. But my mind certainly cherish being forced to pause and just linger in existence.
