Trying time are here, and maybe everyday since the first day of history - trying times are present.This is true not only to each individuals but for businesses most especially.
But what do we do with this given.
There are several options:
1. To give-up and die on the process.
2. To run and hide before you reality caught you.
3. To stand and fight back, may win or lose, but come-out wounded.
4. To manage and strategize, lessen the risk and impact.
This are all path that we all can take.
However, if you ask me, I will select number 4. The difference between 3 and 4 is that in 4 you are managing your emotions and thinking with sensitivity of all the situations and developments that you are in.
We cannot influence or change the bigger things that are powerful and beyond our reach. But what we can do is manage our reactions in the center of these chaos. In addition, think of better ways not to be hurt or devastated in the things that are shaping in our very eyes.
I would like to immediately say that we should all think positive but as John Maxwell says we have to be realistic in thinking positive. We have to gauge what are our odds versus life and our personal battles.
This thing that I am saying is very much the same with running an actual event.We plan hard and do checklist in all possible needs and scenarios. Still, on the actual event some unexpected and unseen things happen. What we do is manage and strategize on how to solve the situation - this is the magic of operation there are always surprises but the key is managing it and making it look good in the end.
