Zen Habits recently published the very useful Finding Peace with Uncertainty, about one of our favorite subjects. It made us go back and leaf through the great Maira Kalman’s wonderful book The Principles of Uncertainty. We clipped this image from it imagining, for sure, she naturally applies Zen Habits’ 8 practices herself (we’ve summed them up below):
Try something new, but small and safe.
When you mess up, don’t see it as painful failure. See the wonder and opportunity in change.
Ask “what’s the worst-case scenario”?
Develop a change toolset.
Become aware of your clinging.
See the downsides of clinging.
Experience the joy in the unknown.
