I guarantee you that in your career S#*& will happen. You will run into the most difficult of challenges. This is when the Character Triangle (CT) will be most challenged. It will be so seductive to blame, feel victimized, become fearful, lash out, and/or avoid. At worse, you’ll do all of the above. We are not perfect beings and sometimes the forces of crap become a tsunami. It can feel overwhelming. This is when Character is most determined; how we react to adverse circumstances.
If we have a crummy day or time, it’s important to dust ourselves off and reconnect with the values of the CT. Focus on what we can do the next minute, hour, day, month. What’s next is most important.
