    Instead of resisting change, go with the flow

    Tommy Caldwell faced a life-altering decision while climbing in the remote mountains of Kyrgyzstan; his group was captured. They were held at gunpoint by members of a rebel militia.

    For days, Caldwell and his climbing companions were held hostage, with no hope of rescue. And by the sixth day, Caldwell realized what needed to be done.

    At this point, they were high in the mountains and they were being guarded by just one of the gunmen. Caldwell summoned up all his strength – physical and psychological – and pushed his captor off the cliff.

    Caldwell killed out of necessity. His decision enabled his group to escape and survive. But even so, the act really weighed on him.

    When Caldwell returned home to Colorado, he struggled with the knowledge that he’d taken another person's life. His life had changed forever.

    While this is an extreme example, change is something we all struggle with. It’s often a jarring, disorienting experience. And whether we like it or not, it’s something we all have to deal with in our lives, over and over again.

    Research shows that, on average, we experience 36 so-called “disorder events” during adulthood such as starting a new job, moving town, or breaking up with a partner. That’s a significant life change every 18 months.

    But although it can be difficult, change isn’t the enemy. The real challenge arises from our reaction to change.

    All too often, our instinct is to resist – to cling to what's familiar and comfortable. But here’s something worth keeping in mind: many world philosophical traditions – Buddhism and Stoicism, for example – have long recognized not just the profound difficulty of change but also the inevitability.

    Yes, change is hard. But it’s also unavoidable.

    Recent findings in psychology and neuroscience have come to an interesting conclusion. Change itself is actually neutral. It’s resisting change that can lead to both psychological and physical suffering.

    So, what should you do instead?

    Stulberg argues that true resilience and adaptability – what he calls “rugged flexibility” – come from embracing, not resisting, the flow of life.

    On that note, let’s go back to Caldwell for a moment.

    After his traumatic experience in Kyrgyzstan, Caldwell faced yet another change and another challenge – he lost his index finger in an accident.

    For many, this would signal the end of a climbing career. But Caldwell's resilience and adaptability saved him. Instead of giving up, he accepted his new reality. He adapted his techniques and mindset to continue climbing, just with different limitations.

    A key to navigating change is shifting your perspective. When you ground yourself in the reality of a situation, even if it means facing a harsh truth or hitting rock bottom, you're more equipped to move forward. By fully accepting change, you unlock the potential to adapt and grow.

    This mindset was essential in Caldwell's journey, which culminated in his triumphant free climb of El Capitan in Yosemite. His success wasn’t in spite of his challenges but because of his attitude toward them.

    So, if you’re seeking a richer, more fulfilling life, it's essential to embrace a core principle of rugged flexibility – openness to the flow of life.

    And here’s something else to consider. Without change, life would become, well, mundane. Boring.

    It's through the ebb and flow, the challenges and triumphs, that you’ll find depth and meaning.

    Ich bin begeistert. Ich liebe Bücher aber durch zwei kleine Kinder komme ich einfach nicht zum Lesen. Und ja, viele Bücher haben viel bla bla und die Quintessenz ist eigentlich ein Bruchteil.

    Genau dafür ist Blinkist total genial! Es wird auf das Wesentliche reduziert, die Blinks sind gut verständlich, gut zusammengefasst und auch hörbar! Das ist super. 80 Euro für ein ganzes Jahr klingt viel, aber dafür unbegrenzt Zugriff auf 3000 Bücher. Und dieses Wissen und die Zeitersparnis ist unbezahlbar.

    Extrem empfehlenswert. Statt sinnlos im Facebook zu scrollen höre ich jetzt täglich zwischen 3-4 "Bücher". Bei manchen wird schnelle klar, dass der Kauf unnötig ist, da schon das wichtigste zusammen gefasst wurde..bei anderen macht es Lust doch das Buch selbständig zu lesen. Wirklich toll
