A meme on social media shares the picture of a goat – or is it a bird? Depending upon which area of the picture you focus on, you’ll see two totally different creatures. Most can eventually see both, but one or the other will pop into view instantly.
Hold it as a possibility that, like with this meme, two different things can be true simultaneously. You can be happy to be working from home and missing your colleagues. You can enjoy being around your kids and wishing they were back in school full-time. You can believe that Project A is important and Project B, even though there are only funds for one.
Learn to embrace the duality even though you may vehemently embrace one side. Even if all you see is the goat, the bird is still there.
