Live and learn

Live life as if you will die tomorrow, learn, as if you will live forever

                                                                                   Mahatma Gandhi

In these times of negativity, it is easy to lose sight of the bigger picture.  Under threat, our natural tendency is to withdraw, go quiet, protect. It’s like hiding from the dragon until it has passed. That’s no way to live if the dragon takes up residence nearby for a while!


In times of threat a better response may be to continue to live life fully, continue business fully, keep working fully … just in a different way. One that is less expensive, more productive and just as beneficial if not moreso.


Just as importantly is to use the time to learn so you are better positioned when the  threat passes and you’ll find you’re streets ahead of those who just ‘retired’ until the threat passed.
