    Fascinating perspective Chuck! One of the most powerful and compelling messages I’ve read on overcoming the crisis we are all facing today. Complacency is an attractive short-term sale, but it only prolongs dissatisfaction. Your message of resilience resonates deeply with me and I appreciate your action steps for becoming practitioners of resilience in our daily lives. Looking forward to more insightful perspectives in the future.

      Barbara, my thoughts exactly! We forget the need for this when we’re in the midst of a crisis, worried about our loved ones and hoping we can hold onto our jobs. Chuck’s post puts things in perspective – just what we need right now.
