Welcome to the Neutral Zone

………I never really stopped to consider how I did what I did, I just got on with it. But, once I began to consciously reflect on it I fell in a heap and couldn’t really figure out how I’d done it. Or perhaps more importantly – I didn’t know why. And, I certainly didn’t know what I was going to do next. 

I came to recognise this place of limbo as the ‘Neutral Zone’ – or the second phase described by Bridges………….

In between the letting go and the taking hold again, there is a chaotic but potentially creative “neutral zone” when things aren’t the old way, but aren’t really a new way yet either. This three-phase process-ending, neutral zone, beginning again-is transition. Transition is the way that we all come to terms with change.”

Thought for the Week – 27th April 2020

Contemplation

“Scientists who study human motivation have lately learned that after basic survival needs have been met, the combination of autonomy (the desire to direct your own life), mastery (the desire to learn, explore, and be creative), and purpose (the desire to matter, to contribute to the world) are our most powerful intrinsic drivers—the three things that motivate us most. All three are deeply woven through the fabric of flow.”
