Adversity reveals character

KLD on Instagram creates these and they are fun to see.

Adversity reveals character.

Adversity doesn’t develop character, it reveals it.

Last night my final message to our son was this:

Hey, tomorrow, let’s talk about how calm i’ve been in the midst of Covid-19. Most people are panicked, deeply concerned about their future, and literally having anxiety attacks. My whole life has been a slow and steady continuous improvement journey. You would be perfectly normal to be freaked out now, and freaked out because your friends are probably freaked out. Please do not compare where you are with where i am. Sleep on it and we’ll talk tomorrow.

What you are about to read next is what i call clarity, expectations, and accountability – summed up, bluntly, as one of life’s harsh realities. You are the CEO of You, Inc. Everything in your life is your responsibility. To refute this is to live in a closed-mindset, child-adult relationship with your world.

If you aren’t leading yourself well now, you weren’t leading yourself well before Covid-19.

If you were leading yourself well before Covid-19, you are leading yourself well now.

Adversity is showing our true colors as they say.

i am presently unemployed, and probably will be for the rest of the year, so this is a perfect time to panic. But panic isn’t in my vocabulary anymore, and hasn’t been for years.

Meanwhile, i continue to offer hope and personal challenge, as i have my whole life, to anyone who cares to listen.

Flock together

Things only become a saying or a cliche if they are true. Small wisdom soundbites passed from generation to generation.

Birds of a feather flock together.

Use this wisdom to your advantage.

Please don't tell me

How is time money?

If you’re lucky, you’ll realize this sooner rather than later in life.

How is time money?

If it has to be explained to you, you do not yet know.

How will you know when you know?

You’ll know when you are able to authentically explain it to others, particularly someone you care about.

Want to know the power of a single day?

Ask someone who’s counting theirs.

Rock, Paper, Scissors, Genius

Grasshopper, try to take the pebble from my hand.

While working with my media company yesterday, the conversation turned to timeless wisdom.

The discussion led us to YouTube and the clip you see above.

From an old TV show such incredible truth, it floored us because of its profound simplicity.

It was a microphone drop moment.

The name Grasshopper originated here.
