Perspective

It’s all too easy when you’re dead tired and facing an impossible situation at work to get angry and give up.  Someone else can handle it.   I quit (at least mentally and emotionally).  What if quitting isn’t an option?  Ever?

Let me give you all the same clue I found:  we don’t know jack.

So today’s post is going to be a link, mostly, to a piece written by a former colleague and current friend who explains how he has turned maybe the most difficult situation into something totally beautiful.  I hope it affects you the way it did me and reminds you of the things that really matter (and in general, work deadlines aren’t on the list).  Thank you, Russell, for bringing me back to reality.
