One morning there was a note on the monastery bulletin board. It was a picture of 2 monks sitting in meditation with faces of total disbelief. Under the picture it said: “Nothing happens next. This is it”.
This is as relevant to me after 30 years in business as it was when I was a monk. We often fail to recognize harsh realities by dreaming about the future and wind up making bad decisions. By understanding where you actually are, paths forward become clearer.
