“We are all faced with a series of great opportunities brilliantly disguised as impossible situations.”Charles R. Swindoll
Every manager in every organization faces great opportunities everyday as they navigate the often-turbulent waters trying to meet the requirements of their stockholders, the wants of the clients, the needs of their employees and their obligations to their family.
Vince Lombardi said, “I firmly believe any man’s finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a worthy cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle – victorious.”
My experience has also taught me that darkest hours are often followed by finest moments. What is your finest moment, that moment when you successfully navigated the requirements of your stockholders, the wants of your client, the needs of your employees, and your obligations to your family? That moment when you lay exhausted on the field of battle – victorious? That moment when you turned an impossible situation into a fantastic opportunity?
“My experience has taught me the more impossible the situation, the greater the opportunity.”Amy Edge
