It’s a time for resilience in business again.  Just as we thought that perhaps the flood waters of change were abating.

Here’s a great poem to turn to: “Don’t Quit”. 

When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low but the debts are high,
And you want to smile but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.
__
Life is strange with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many failures turn about
When we might have won had we stuck it out.
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow –
You may succeed with another blow.
__
Success is failure turned inside out
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
You can never tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far;
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit
It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.
__
Written by poet Edgar A. Guest in the 1920s.
Forward to a friend, you might help them make that final push.
