Episode 109 – Perspective check!

Challenging times come in two flavors: chronic and acute. What’s happening now, the upheaval due to COVID-19, is definitely acute. The change and the impact have been intense, far-reaching, and quick.

But the external conditions, as real as they are, need not define your internal conditions.

Do we surrender to the “terrible” or do we look for the opportunity?

So I ask you: What gifts are available right now?
And going forward?
