Like this post from last April on business plyometrics, your ability to respond rapidly to change is more relevant than ever. Like moments that place our character on display, crises do not create successful leaders or cause businesses to fail, it merely accentuates what has been there all along.
Circumstances and occurrences are agnostic. it is not intentionally putting you under pressure or in some way out to get you. It just is. What it reveals about you has always been there. When the oceans recede to reveal your nakedness it’s an indication that you decided to forgo your costume, not the oceans ill-intent.
The opportunity in that is that for the first time in a long time, the fog has lifted. The fundamentals are visible for the world to investigate. It’s a time to inspect, to reconsider, to improve.
If you don’t like what you see, make it better.
