There are contractors here at the house all week. Oddly when you know disruption is coming it is almost harder to deal with. You examine all the options. As long as they're doing X maybe we should change Y. What can be done? What should be done? What can we afford to do? What are the smartest choices? When disruption is unexpected our responses become instinctual. We must make immediate decisions. There is less analysis and more action.
Disruption allows us to disconnect. We are forced to change our path and new paths suddenly appear before us. It forces us to take off our blinders and see the big picture. It's an opportunity as long as we find a way to make it work for us.
