Get Back on the Horse!

“The kind of commitment I find among the best performers across virtually every field is a single-minded passion for what they do, an unwavering desire for excellence in the way they think and the way they work.  Genuine confidence is what launches you out of bed in the morning, and through your day with a spring in your step.” – Jim Collins

 

By this time next week, barring another election disaster like what we experienced in 2000, we will know who the next president of the U.S. will be.  Considering the constant flow of negative economic news over the last several months, I for one am optimistic that November 5 will mark the beginning of a new more positive tone.  I am not suggesting that suddenly everything will be wonderful again, only that possibly we will be allowed to begin our journey back to a more stable economic environment without being constantly reminded how bleak everything is.

 

I am convinced the best course for those of us not responsible for publishing the news is to buckle down and focus on what it is that we do for a living.  Admit it, most of us spend too much of our time fretting over things outside our sphere of influence.  Companies are struggling just to survive and our jobs are truly on the line – these are facts.  So consider it, accept it and then stick it on a shelf and get back to work on what it is you actually do to contribute to the bottom line.  It will get better – believe it!
