Ever been in a business/marketing situation that went south faster than Wiley E Coyote, Super-Genius, could become one with the rocks below?
Wow that sure can be painful!
And it doesn’t even have to be marketing/business – you could easily start munching on your foot wherever you might be, should you encounter discussions/actions that simply do NOT go the way you desire.
For the vast majority of people, however, another possible “Danger Will Robinson” appears! And that is become a prisoner of your own making – it’s beating yourself up about things you think you *should* have known, except if you’re dealing with Vulcan logic, you realize that life simply IS… and sometimes can affect you in the weirdest of ways.
You see, as we grow older, we discover the world is NOT black and white, has never BEEN black and white, and will always spark off into bazillions of grey.
Not only that, but if you find yourself slightly “betrayed”, you can always understand the reasoning behind it (as you yourself know that life is never fair, simple, or to be repetitive, black and white). And “understanding” results in “less energy for anger” which might ? allow for true communications at last.
Your takeaway? Don’t be a rigid tweeblehead. If something bad happens to you in business, don’t knee-jerk immediately as an answer – give yourself time to be mindful and take whatever lessons are trying to slap themselves across your face. You will probably learn a great deal!
