Living on The Edge of Chaos…
We all live on the edge of chaos every time something changes. It does not matter what the change is, or when the change occurs. This change can be personal, national, financial, emotional, or psychological. When change happens, we are forced to move to the edge of chaos to deal with it.
This is particularly true if the situation forcing our change is new to us: divorce, bankruptcy, unanticipated wealth, death of a loved one, business failure, rules change, etc.
Living on the edge of chaos is where all great ideas happen and real change (personal, professional, interpersonal) occurs. This is what we need to learn to deal with and manage so it does not destroy us, force us into fear based decisions, or make us complacent.
Living on the edge of chaos forces us to think differently to solve a problem. Living on the edge of chaos forces us to make sometimes painful choices, to think differently about a situation, to solicit new inputs, and take new actions to eliminate the pain this change has caused.
Living on the edge of chaos, for this change to be effective, requires we take in data that may not have been important in the past. It requires we take total ownership for the situation, for in total ownership are we empowered to take the action required. If we do not own something we cannot effective change it.
Living on the edge of chaos requires we think about situation from a more global perspective. It requires we see things as they are, not as we want them to be. It requires we understand the impact of our actions on others. It requires we make an informed, responsible and deliberate choice.

If you are living on the edge of chaos and want help, call me. I can help because I have been living on the edge now for quite a while. It is not fun but with the right tools, support, and perspective, great things can happen if you have the disciple to let them.

Creating order out of chaos required creating (or recreating) a sense of order that puts you back in control and allows you be flexible enough to deal with the problems of being human. It does not require you judge yourself. If does require you evaluate your actions and how you contributed to the chaos. Be gentle with yourself but be fair and objective.

To managing Chaos and Creating Results.
