Crisis = danger and opportunity
Everybody is talking about the crisis. What about you? Are you lamenting about the present situation? Do you see a light at the end of the tunnel? Or do you actually embrace the crisis, take it as an opportunity to learn?
Yesterday I have come across a quote by John F. Kennedy. In a speech in Indianapolis on April 12, 1959 he said, “The Chinese use two brush strokes to write the word ‘crisis.’ One brush stroke stands for danger; the other for opportunity. In a crisis, be aware of the danger – but recognize the opportunity.”
There are clear signs that we have reached the nadir of the financial crisis. At least we are very close to it. This is the time to identify leads, pick up the seeds of the success of tomorrow. Go for it and don’t miss out. When you realize that the economy is growing again it may already be too late.
I am curious about your insights and success stories of a new genesis. Let us know what you think.
