How Do You Keep Up When the New Normal Is “No Normal?”

When everything in your world is changing too fast, sometimes the best thing you can do is stop trying to keep up.

In this episode, Cathy reflects on the years since the onset of the pandemic and how the new normal sometimes feels like no normal. From the steady drumbeat of natural disasters, wars and gun violence to rapid advances in technology, and shifting norms in work life and the culture at large, the pace of change feels breathtaking. All of this upheaval has produced a sense of displacement.

She explores the question, how do we navigate in a land of no normal?
