Anyone who is familiar with winters in the Midwest is well aware of the cold temperatures and hazardous road conditions that are a byproduct of this weather. This winter has been exceptionally harsh.
Recently, I was driving and I was sliding everywhere. I had very little traction. In that moment, I had a choice, I could allow anxiety to gain dominance or I could take a deep breath, keep my eyes on the road, and take the corners more slowly.
Is this ringing a bell? When in your life have you turned the corners a little too quickly and lost control? Have you given into fear? How did that work out?
Sometimes in our lives and even in our business, we are on a course and we are running late or things are not sailing along as we would like. We cut corners and lose ground. This happens to the best of us. What's most important is that we get back on course. Do you know your course?
Take your time, take a breath, and drive safely. As long as you know your destination, the path will be revealed.
