How to stay focused and resilient in the face of adversityBy Andrew Neitlich
Well, it appears as if Hurricane Ivan is now approaching my neck of the woods, after two previous hurricanes left us relatively unscathed (a down tree, a damaged screen, and some squished frogs/lizards caught between our door jams).
It is quite hard to focus on business these days, what with an 8-month pregnant wife, a toddler, and two dogs to think about evacuating, keeping cool if the electricity fails, and keeping safe if we stay and serious damage happens. Plus living in Florida is not what we bargained for.
But there’s nothing to do but keep on working while hoping for the best. Clients are expecting deliverables. No time for drama or distraction.
It quite easy to get distracted, frustrated, and even paralyzed when it comes to business.
What’s the “hurricane” keeping you from being fully productive? How are you dealing with it?
