The grass had grown knee-high over the last couple of months and it took several hours to cut and weed-eat the area. It was hot (92) and humid and we quickly became drenched in sweat. However, when refueling we hydrate ourselves. It's best to bear down and push forward regardless of how hot it is and how hard it is. Then you suddenly look up and see the vast area that has been cut.
When one pauses to refuel/hydrate, you get a chance to look around and see nature moving about. I found that I had disturbed the natural status of the environment. I saw lizards, spiders, worms, and moths that we scampering about to find new cover. They were beautiful and previously unseen and now seeking a new protective cover. When leaving we looked across the field and saw 6 wild turkeys feeding. They can see well, hear well, run and fly fast. They can quickly adjust to a changed environment. What a thrill to see nature at its best.
This is way it is in business too. The business world gets disturbed by a change not anticipated. How do we adjust, can we scamper to a better environment? Are we prepared to change the way we do business? Do we have the right people to make the adjustment possible?
Is our business as well protected? Develop the skill set and prepare for the worst while taking advantage of situations that develop.
