Resilience is a deep-rooted sense of joy and purpose that will not be defeated by any adversity.
“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” Martin Luther King, Jr
Hold On to core beliefs, values and ideas that serve you well.
Let Go of beliefs, values and ideas that don’t serve you well.
Move On to replace what you left behind with what you hope for.
“Resiliency: How to Bounce Back Faster, Stronger, Smarter” by Tessa Albert Warschaw and Dee Barlow, MasterMedia Limited, New York, 1995
Editor-In-Chief of ODE magazine Jurriaan Kamp provides a huge WOW in his Letter from the Editor. "RESILIENCE is cropping up with increasing frequency as the next step in thinking about SUSTAINABILITY."
"RESILIENCE is a dynamic concept focused on incorporating inevitable CHANGE. RESILIENCE is about how systems respond and how we can support such responses."
Kamp goes on to say that "RESILIENCE is very different from SUSTAINABILITY. Sustainable, after all, means 'capable of being maintained'(!). SUSTAINABILITY features static control. RESILIENCE is about DYNAMIC RESPONSE."
He adds one more thought: "Resilience systems have a capacity to handle disruptions (change) and reorganize themselves while preserving their function, structure and identity."
