A thought to start the week: “react or create”.
React or Create
Problems, failures and criticisms are gold mines. They give us a whole new perspective: on what we planned; on what we’re working on; on what we’re building; on ourselves. And they show us a route to development, advancement and success.
If we know how to respond.
So here’s a simple choice: react or create? Will you choose to react? To take it personally. To get defensive. To play it over and over in your mind.
Or will you choose to create? To see it as a gift. To take the opportunity to learn and (re-)build. To generate some new from that foundation.
So in the face of your next problem, failure or critique, ask: what shall we create from this?
