About the Knowledge Base
Search all the Knowledge Base
Testimonial: I have found that the new HDAA Knowledge Base reduces the time it takes me to research industry stats & reliable information for the ITSM sector. It’s easy to use search functionality encompassing KCS principles, helps to filter & tailor my searches more accurately & there are numerous new services now available through the website. Every time I return to the site there is new information published. Very impressive.

No doubt this year has been a great teacher of all sorts of things for us. I know I was pushed to limits that I have not experienced before, and it created quite a challenge. But, as you are all getting to know me after years as a contributing writer for SupportWorld, you know I am up for a good challenge. As are you, my wonderful reader.
I am going to concentrate on our agility, our ability to be nimble and move quickly through the issues of the day at work and at home, our adaptability and flexibility, which are Emotional Intelligence competencies! So, let’s build those EQ muscles.
What happens to us humans after we have been torn asunder all year long from being overworked…when we have been made to change directions on a dime, told to stuff 10 pounds of potatoes in a 5-pound bag (4.53kg into a 2.26kg-bag for the rest of the HDI world’s readers)? Together, having limited sleep all year long, probably not made it the gym as intended or eaten all kinds of obnoxiously dangerous food all that time? Oh, and then there are the stressors of our actual life like the house or apartment, commute, health, children relationships, watching the fear monger news or simple car issues…I could go on! This is something that we all have in common.
When these things happen, we lose our agility or our ability to be nimble and flexible if we don't learn from the experience. The idea here is to learn; learn about how to establish borders and boundaries; learn how to say NO without feeling guilty; and learn that putting yourself first is not selfish, but a survival tactic that will establish strength, confidence, and fortitude for the times in life that become overwhelming.
Why is this topic so important to me right now? Well, this year I came face to face with death twice with a surprising health scare (appendix if you want to know). One minute I was participating in my life to the fullest, and within two days life was in a thousand pieces on the floor and I was looking at them from a hospital bed all doped up. It is true what they say; life gets put into perspective when the chance of it being taken away is presented to you.
With all the wisdom that has been endowed, with all the tests in life I have passed or failed then passed, this is what I encourage us all to do in order to increase and keep our agile lives. Consider adding these as we move into the new year with a fresh perspective and the hope of simply controlling some of the chaos:
Body. If you don’t have your health, you have nothing.
Mind. The only person you can change is you.
Spirit. In-between stimulus and response is a space (Viktor Frankl). Use the space to be a better you.
With that new year upon us, we have the opportunity to challenge ourselves to be our best selves. I never want to sound like a poster gal for common phrases, yet this one seems apt:
“We are not promised tomorrow.”
My encouragement is make the changes, live in the present and fully, and do what makes you content and fills your purpose. Once you get everything done that you need to, should do, and have to, step into what you love to do and want to do. In doing so, you and I will certainly find ourselves more flexible, more adaptable, and, obviously, more agile! Here’s to the best you in the new year!
