“Any idiot can face a crisis; it’s the day to day living that wears you out.”
I love this quote.
I love it because so many times in the business world someone touts their ability to be “leader in a crisis.”
God knows I have fallen into that trap.
Some people are really good in a crisis.
A lot of people look good in a crisis even though they really aren’t .. out of sheer luck of the draw <as well as the fact they figured out how to survive>.
The true test of people is how they manage every day. This is where I mention something else I have written (but may not have been published yet).
I don’t know how they do it. The way they face the stress of everyday life and responsibilities is an example many of us could learn from if we took the time to do so. Single mothers, parents, have my utmost respect in how they refuse to let “day to day living wear you out.”
I have seen far too many idiots face a crisis.
The true test in Life is facing the day to day crap.
And we should all aspire to not letting life wear you out.
