My thoughts are with blogger friends and colleagues who are under the gun of the massive storm heading their way. It's a time of great uncertainty.
There are times like these when we simply do not know what to do, or where to go next. And there's the fear of losing what material things that we have. It's hard to imagine that life is peaceful one day and the next there is the potential for destruction of those things that we hold dear.
So I'm keeping all those in the path of this storm in my thoughts. I hope that they will do what is necessary to keep themselves safe.
"Well if we can't plan for it, and we can't let it distract us 24 hours a day every day, what can we do?
Beats me, is mostly my response.
But I have fallen deeply in love with a word that may be of use ... Resilience.
To deal with the absurdly unlikely, we can find resilient people ......... to be more or less able to respond to a knockout blow—right out of left field." Tom Peters
