Waking up to see the falling stock market as the main article on CNN is getting old. Hearing the NPR newcasters skirting around the r-word (that which must not be named—recession! Gasp!) is beyond tiring. Watching the federal government throw money at us in order to fix the economy is a little backward.
I’m happy to finally see someone talk about the up side. And of course, it’s Seth Godin:
“Change (and the fortunes that go with it) is almost always made during the down part of the cycle. It might not be fun, but it’s exciting.”
Losing your job is never easy, but it is an opportunity. Despite what everyone is saying, recession isn’t the end of the world.
