Are things moving too fast for you

If you're worried that the world is changing too fast, you're not alone: technology is constantly developing, and it can be challenging to keep up with all the changes. As a result, many people - not just the older generations - feel anxious that they might get left behind.

We live in exciting times when the world is changing rapidly, and we need to acquire new knowledge and learn new skills every day. While most of us love the comfort of familiar things and dislike change, we must be open to disruption, reinventing ourselves to meet the challenges of the world as it shifts around us.

Young people grow up as "digital natives" who seem to be able to access new technological developments almost effortlessly. But many people, especially those who grew up in the analogue age, find it challenging to adapt, and it can be tempting to give up and stick with what we know.

If you feel that the world is moving too fast for you, Bach flowers can support you in these stressful times.

How to make sure you don't get left behind

There's no time to be lost: tackle the fear of not keeping up head-on with these strategies.

Focus on the present

When you feel overwhelmed, focus on the moment. Breathe deeply and take it a minute at a time. Don't brood on the past or worry about the future. Instead, pay attention to the present and concentrate on what you need to get done in the next few minutes.

Break down a complex project into small tasks and get started straight away on the smallest of them. Then tackle the following few critical tasks. Get through today, celebrate and be prepared to begin again in the morning.

Reinvent yourself

Don't stagnate in your comfort zone but constantly reinvent yourself, eager to meet new challenges. When you're faced with a problem, be disruptive, improvise and work it out. Take risks - every unique experience is a learning opportunity. Don't take yourself too seriously. And don't miss out on opportunities to try out new things because you're afraid to fail.

Try to build more resilience and grit - after all, if it doesn't kill you, it'll make you stronger. When you're learning new skills, be kind to yourself. Don't be scared to ask questions. Give yourself time for original thoughts - when you're faced with a problem, go for a walk and look for a solution from a fresh perspective.

Disruptive, independent thinking comes when you give yourself opportunities for discovery and renewal. Make time for travel, adventures and discovering new influences. Learning is a lifelong adventure, and you need to take responsibility for your personal development. Play an instrument, or learn a new language. Read often and read widely from a variety of sources. Developing positive habits is a fantastic way to add value to all aspects of your life and your career.

Get creative with your assets

The government won't save you, nor will the organisation you work for. The days of a lifetime working with the same company are long gone. You must take control and seize the initiative in your career and personal life. The best strategy to achieve this is to develop your skills and assets over the long term. Invest your efforts in creating something for the future that will help you achieve your dream - while still working at the day job!

It's not just about your career or your finances. It's also about finding your voice and giving yourself opportunities for love, excitement, creativity, flow, and adventure. It's never too late to start: nurturing good habits and self-discipline will help you move toward your goals.

The changing world is full of opportunities. Anyone can build their own business today - all you need is an internet connection and a smartphone or laptop. Consider your skills, interests and unique strengths. What can you give the world? Your creativity, curiosity, passion and enthusiasm are the keys to this long term strategy.

One way to discover your vocation is to spend more time on your interests and hobbies. The ideal is to find a niche sector in which you can be a world expert. Keep a journal to record your thoughts and ideas, any problems that arise and the solutions you find. Create ideas based on your experiences. Whether you dream of writing a novel, starting a business or service, or creating a blog or a YouTube channel, spend time becoming an expert in your field.

A final thought

We live in uncertain times, and it's crucial to keep abreast with the changes in technology. But does it really matter if we don't keep up with all the latest developments? Few people can achieve this. Learning to use the technology that's most relevant to our lives is sufficient for most people.

We can't see into the future, and there's no way to know about tomorrow's organisations, markets and jobs. What we can be sure about is the necessity to take control of our own destinies. We must be open to learning, changing and ensuring that we don't get stuck in a comfortable rut. In these disruptive times, we must find our voices, meanings and strengths, improving, learning and changing every day.
