The year is probably not going how you expected. What’s done is done. Big wheels have been set in motion that will affect the global economy in significant ways. It will probably get worse before it gets better.

It will get better. How you posture yourself will play a significant part in how you experience the upside. All things considered, we are in this for the long haul. The slog has begun. It won’t be pretty and it might not be fun. Work that matters rarely is.

And for those of us still waiting for the storm to ease out before we get started, here’s some thoughts about the difference between patience and passivity. A key distinction in these confusing times.

A slog is only bad if we dislike functioning within discipline and dedication. When the only answer is instant gratification. If that is the case, this next season might challenge you to cultivate more enduring abilities.

Such abilities yield great returns. A worthy pursuit indeed.
