Note: This posting is based on my weekly “Thank God It’s Monday” which is offered to help companies thrive!
This week’s focus: leadership
Aristotle Onassis, the late shipping magnate, offers, “We must free ourselves of the hope that the sea will ever rest. We must learn to sail in high winds.”
I’m pretty sure Wall Street and the main stream media do not accept the notion above. Our 24 hour cable news shows and websites do little more than constantly stir the pot of fear, uncertainty and doubt. “The sky is falling, the sky is falling.” Unless it’s not. Stay tuned!
The market indices are little more than a barometer of how we feel about the future. Some days, the mood is up; some days, the mood is down. So what!
Everyone would benefit if they payed less attention to the news and market indices and, instead, maintained a laser-like focus on creating success with their customers, employees and shareholders.
Focus on what you want, not what you don’t want. This is the key to thriving.
Thought for the week:
