I fondly remember my grandmother having a picture in her house with this quote from Dale Carnegie on it. As a kid, I never really took the time to think about it much.
Funny, it popped into my mind this morning as I started to stew and worry about all that is going on in our world today.
I had a case of the "what if's". What if the economy crashes, what if I need to fly home to my parents in an emergency, what if we see a reoccurrence in the fall like they are predicting? We can play the "what if" game, however a better use of our time is to be better prepared.
Take what we have learned, make it better, make it more efficient and effective, and we will be ready for whatever comes our way. The gym is closed? No problem, I know how to create a home workout. Cooking at home? No problem, I taught myself while I was social distancing at home. Work from home? No problem, I have the technology to support that!
Take the time now to learn, teach, and prepare your teams for the future. Don't waste time and energy on worry - spend that energy on something more productive and strive to do your best in these times. Tomorrow will be here and it is a new opportunity to show the world you got this!
