To help develop resilience you can consider the textbook definition: the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness. As we are all impacted by COVID-19 around the world and even today I heard they were reinstituting the curfews in New Delhi, India ... we have to be able to consider what could be the "good" or the "positive" that can come from the situation. As Quality professionals we all want things to be right the first time, yet, we do experience where that is not the case. To help build the skill of quick recovery consider the following questions:
- What is it about this situation that is difficult or tough?
- What do I control related to this situation? (if nothing else, you control your response to the situation)
- What would help me look at the situation differently?
- Can I find something that this will enable me to do that I couldn't do otherwise? (Example: Having to work from home. By working at home I can get chores accomplished during the week that I would have to give my weekend up to do (washing clothes, cleaning a closet, etc.) Now, I have my weekend - but I still have to stay home ... What's good about that? (You do not have to accomplish work or chores; but you can do things for you to make you that more resilient person; gain a new skill, read something, build something, create something, talk to family or friends that you've neglected because you are so busy, etc.)
