“Every problem has in it the seeds of its own solution. If you don’t have any problems, you don’t get any seeds.” ~ Norman Vincent Peale
This quote on adversity was included in Dan Miller’s (48 Days) April 1st newsletter. The quote was timely and an encouragement after a tough week when our server had a major hiccup in April. I can smile about it now, but I’ve also made several changes to allow us to cope in the event a similar situation arises.
One of my ongoing commitments is striving to do better and be a little better every day. This is why I love the power of hindsight. It gives me an opportunity to see a situation with all the pieces of the puzzle and ask questions like…
How could I have handled this situation better? Or, what can I do to prepare for similar situations that may arise in the future?
My hope is that applying the lesson(s) learned will help me be more proactive. In essence, I am planting the seeds from a problem to create great solutions. What are your thoughts on hindsight? What methods do you use for personal and professional development?
Until Next time… Be Well,
Celebrating a Natural. Beautiful. You.
