With patience, the distant shore can still be reached by shaping oars from a broken mast.
The world is in shambles, the comforts that we have taken for granted are variable at best. Millions of business owners around the world have been decimated. And yet the human spirit, being what it is, is already rallying towards a new future.
Patience delivers greater rewards, if for no other reason, than a rash move eliminates some of the opportunities that might have presented themselves if a little more time had been available.
I have never been accused of being a patient person. I continue to try and teach myself the value of this somewhat unattainable quality, and some days, I actually feel as if I have made some progress. And others, I see the same critical character flaw in myself that has always been there.
Conversely, I had some friends who have more patience than I could possibly fathom. Sometimes this pans out very well for them, and other times, I find myself urging them to make a move before they would be ready.
Having the self-discipline to take into consideration all of the governing variables so as to make the best possible decision, is one of life‘s greatest lessons. Sometimes, things happen, and upon reflection, we recognize that an even better outcome was obtained as a result of allowing the course of events to play out.
It is considerably easier to resign in the face of an apparent defeat, than it is to take complete inventory of what remains and craft an oar from the broken mask in order to reach the distant shore.
In our current situation, the entire world is facing the same set of variables and humanity at large must evolve in this critical path in order for us to re-emerge a better and stronger specie. It will take many bright minds from many disciplines to galvanize the variables at their disposal in order to relaunch society in an intelligent and productive manner.
I believe collectively we are more than capable of achieving this and significantly more behind that. I very much want to be instrumental in this process and I feel incredibly grateful for the friends and collaborators with whom I am working to add our own little piece of the big puzzle.
I hope you have a very productive Tuesday🌈🥂😊
