A year ago, I introduced a comment or two on stasis, the scientific concept of settling in place. Here we are, a year later, and we are picking up from that settled state and beginning to rustle with more social engagements, a reimagined calendar, and the stirrings of a pre-pandemic life.
You know, if you have ever stood backstage in a theatre, whether it is a school auditorium or a professional production house, you have likely seen a prop table laid out with everything necessary for the show to go on as planned. An experienced stage manager will even label the exact place for each item so there is little chance of confusion in a rushed moment; nothing extra is allowed on the table and nothing extra is needed.
As summer begins in earnest, I hope your prop table remains minimally stocked with only those items you need to play out your days to great applause. The time is ripe for restructuring life in the simplest fashion, regardless of whether you organize your days with pen and paper, or if you are a fan of technology, and you employ several different apps to keep life humming along. Whether you choose to clean out your closets or digitize your files, June is the perfect month to take stock and intentionally decide which pre-pandemic practices can be left behind for good and what new habits can be built upon so as to reinvent life in a simpler, more rewarding fashion.
My friend, I hope you have a chance this month to sit back and think about what you want in your life, and write the script you need to make it happen, as we hit the halfway point of the year.
What do you want on your prop table?
