Taking a walk this morning in Bermuda, noticed a sign in a business that said: “Remain calm – carry on”.
Good advice any time, perhaps more so now when so many organizations and countries are facing financial challenges. Yet, it is panic that will do us in quicker than anything else. Hindsight won’t help us too much. The old saying goes that when you’re up to your keester in alligators, it’s difficult to remember that your original objective was to drain the swamp.
Don’t forget to breathe! Be cool..but don’t freeze. Work smarter and harder as needed, but it may be time to change some objectives too, back to some re-training, the basics.
Let’s not forget the important directions in “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy”. –
