There are things you understand so deeply that you’ll never have to re-learn them, no matter how long you go without using them.
I’ve said before “If it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing well.”
There’s that famous quote, “What gets measured gets managed.” There’s a lot of truth to that, especially as a leader.
Some days you just do what you have to do to get to tomorrow. Do or say anything to or for yourself or others and make it all the way through to bedtime, and then you can sleep. Tomorrow will be different.
Once could be a coincidence. Twice is not a sure thing. Three times you can be pretty sure. Four times is damning.
I don’t have any deep insights today, but wherever you are, whatever you’re doing, I hope it’s going okay. I’m rooting for you. If I can help, reach out.
The suffering is always there. It’s just part of being human.
The breakdown of trust has been a terrible thing to watch. You see it in conspiracy theories and everywhere on the internet and aimed at virtually every kind of media and now everyone’s pointing it at each other. Nobody trusts anybody, and not surprisingly the result is chaos. And it’s mostly the internet’s fault.
Sometimes I’m in a car, there’s a lane which ends and merges with the lane beside it. Because everyone knows how this game goes, everyone gets into the lane which continues nice and early. But inevitably, someone comes screaming up behind us in the lane which cuts off and merges into the line at the last second, instead of waiting their turn.
Forgive yourself and move on.
