Rigidity of Minds

Life prefers movement. However, mobility needs a supporting structure to move freely. I might wish to move in but find my mobility restricted by weak muscles, feeble joints, and a strained mind. Moreover, the surroundings may lower my mobility such as trying to walk in muddy waters.

Research established that moving enhances our brains and makes them think better. The structure of brains in elderly people suffer from cognitive decline because of lack of movement

The lack of mobility leads to rigidity of bodies and their individual parts. This rigidity has very negative impacts on the health of people as well as the health of businesses.

Mobility of People and Organizations

As humans suffer from a lack of mobility, so organizations are. We live in an age of increasing connectivity. This leads to rigidity. We know well that societies and organizations that develop rigidity gaps lower their free mobility. This leads to the next stage and that is disruption.

This possibility is gathering momentum because of the current tendency to work and study at home. Not only are they less moving, but also overly connected.

It is the coupling of restricting moving conditions and increasing our virtual connectivity that are reducing our mobility for we progressively lose our bodies mobility, including our brains, and making mobility harder because of increased interconnectedness.

Increased rigidity reduces mobility and changeability to meet the increased challenges we face daily. In the end, we develop rigidity in our minds that steals our agility to cope with change and awareness of the threats and opportunities change brings to us.

Rigidity of Minds

Our minds need movement and keeping their mobility. They are like a dandelion plant that depends on the wind to carry their seeds.

Our minds need to make new seeds of ideas first. The rigidity of mind reduces this ability. We need the wind then to carry the seeds of these ideas. Brainstorming is a way to generate winds as carriers of our ideas.

Our minds need to connect with other minds, but not at the expense of brainstorming. Remember that overly connected minds develop rigidity gaps that reduce their mobility, changeability and eat their agility.

It is the emerging need of keeping the balance of our minds.

  1. The old saying “mens sana in corpore sano” is always relevant.
    It is scientifically proven that excess connection can cause damage to health.
    And even on smart working there are considerations to be made in this regard: the sedentary lifestyle and the inability to move even just by moving from one’s desk to that of a colleague, the lack of brainstorming, the continuous invasion of the professional sphere into the private one and vice versa, are among the major defects of smart working.
    Perhaps, the office is just only evolving. It is less and less rigid, more open, it is expanding entering the homes of some of the employees, broked the fixed times, shattered the barrier that existed between work time and leisure.
    But it remains a place of encounter, of involvement, of direct confrontation.
