Technical Difficulties

February 14, 2011

An interesting thing happened to me this morning.

I try to write my Monday articles in time to have them posted bright and early Monday morning. However, in the hustle and bustle of Sunday I did not complete the article yesterday. I intended instead to put the finishing touches on it this morning and publish it.

This brings me back to that interesting thing that happened: the power went out this morning!

I admit, with a certain amount of shame and embarrassment, that I do not always react to unplanned disruptions well. There is a reason that I am fond of bubble wrap! Nonetheless, the reality is that things happen in life that we simply cannot foresee. We cannot control these disruptions but we can control how we react to them.

Too often in my lifetime my reaction has been poor. I’m working on it. Today an unexpected interruption produced a positive thought and hopefully something to help your perspective as it has helped mine.

How¬†about you: How do you react when things don’t go as planned?¬†Give it some thought.
