What To Do In The Space “In-Between”

We are at this very moment in a season of transition. Philosophers call this “liminal space”, from the Latin word “limen” which means “threshold”. It’s a season in which something is ending, but the next thing has not yet begun. Many creative pros feel like this describes the season we are all experiencing. The pandemic is ending, but the transition back to office has not yet occurred. Demand is creeping upward, but supply can’t yet keep pace. The job market is shifting, but hasn’t yet settled.

What do you do when you’re in this “liminal space”? On this episode, I share four key things that all of us can do right now to remain effective:

  1. Care for your rhythms
  2. Develop a skill
  3. Ignore the noise but mind the patterns
  4. Protect your optimism and sense of agency
