Transcript:

Taking that different drive to work. That’s another creativity exercise. They’ll tell people sometimes, “You’re thinking is kind of stuck?Go to work a different way that you’ve never gone before.” Turn off Waze and pick which way you want to go and just randomly go somewhere. Sometimes, if I’m not in a time crunch. I’m coming back from a client or something like that, I’ll just drive down the streets that I’ve never driven down before. There are streets in the San Fernando Valley — I’ve lived here 30 years — I’ve never driven down before and sometimes it’s just like “ahh, let’s take a right here.” It keeps your thinking fresh. It keeps that transition “muscle” — the flexibility muscle — toned. We know if we don’t use a physical muscle it atrophies and it makes it all the more harder to use it down the road. Same thing, to me, happens with transition and change. The less we change — the less we engage with change — the less comfortable we are with it.

Transcript:

But we have the ability to change. We — that we do like variety. I’m a variety freak. I love variety. I hate having the same meals every week and all that. I want a variety of things. but there are some people who prefer more stable environment. That’s fine. For your own benefit sometimes, we need to inject a little bit of change into ourselves. Then use those opportunities — those ideas as a way of saying, “Well, I can do that.” Maybe sometimes, it’s very funny, because it’s the smallest things that can break through your thinking sometimes. I’m wearing my red power speaking socks that I always wear when Igo out to speak and sometimes just changing the color of your socks. Sometimes just changing how your brush your hair. It doesn’t — it’s not these gut wrenching, life altering, divorce-related, move to South Sea Island, changes in our life that we should feel that we’re trying to accomplish. We’re simply trying to “tickle” things a little bit.

Transcript:

It’s an opportunity for you to readjust your course. To perhaps see where you’ve been on a path that is not the path for you. Which is perhaps why — layoffs are horrible because it usually has — in most cases — I would say 99% of the cases — it has nothing to do with you. A lot of us have been in that position. That project didn’t come through. That sale didn’t get made. Well, guess, what? We don’t have the work for the people we’ve staffed up to do. Take that to heart and see this truly as an opportunity for you to move beyond a company that is perhaps struggling or needs to evaluate its own priorities and evaluate your own. See this as an opportunity to get a little “kick in the butt” sometimes which we all need on many occasions and more forward.

Transcript:

For most of us in this room, we are lucky. Even in our situations as they currently stand most of our life needs are being met. we can feed ourselves. We have a roof over our head. It may be a struggle. It may be troublesome right now, but we at least have those basic needs met and it’s that stability that allows us to think about these other-other ways and other wants, needs, and desires in our lives. It also allows you to look out there and see transition not as a threat but as an opportunity. This is an opportunity — and it sounds like a cliche, I know — “This layoff is an opportunity for you!” Right? It doesn’t feel like it at the time. It feels so bad and so scary and so frightening. It is an opportunity.
