Getting Back to Basics in a Time of Uncertainty
This time of the year brings uncertainty for many 18 year olds (and their parents too). As a parent of a graduating high school senior, I have a plethora of emotions going through my mind. Although I am excited and can’t wait for my senior to enter the next chapter of his life as he attends a school in what seems like another continent, 1633.8 miles away to be exact; I run through a virtual checklist in my mind to make sure I have prepared him for anything that can happen while he embarks on this new adventure.
My thoughts drift back to when he still wanted to hold my hand crossing the street. I was once his super hero that could protect him from anything. There was a time when he would hang on my every word listening intently to my advice, stories and even laugh at my jokes. It was an honor to get to coach him in sports at an early age, celebrate his victories and console him during his defeats. Memories of watching him overcome obstacles and achieving success will last a lifetime and hopefully a few lessons will resonate with him as he encounters new challenges in this world.
Life is pretty simple if you slow down enough to take measure. Most people in this world are good, but there are some that want to do you harm. Understanding that you can vastly improve your odds of safety by avoiding hazardous situations and networking with those who are achieving success can lead you to greatness. Realizing that every challenge presents an opportunity to allow you to change course gaining valuable experience to prepare you for the next trial that will arise will be vital to your growth. Being transparent with others allows your true character to be exposed, but also allows you to see the true character of others. You will not be able to please everyone, but you will be able to take solace if you think of others before yourself. When you do something, do it with passion or don’t waste your time doing it. Take time to celebrate the little wins and have fun while archiving the things that keep you from accomplishing your goals avoiding those things in the future.
Business is no different than life and with social media your entire operation is online for the world to see. As business around the United States are dealing with the fallout from the coronavirus outbreak and stories of racial inequality; now is the time to get back to the basics. Many of the lessons I have tried to teach my son are applicable to business as well.
