Avoid the hurdles. Every so often something will happen that could threaten the life of your business. If you’re lucky, this only happens once a month or so. For us it seems to happen every three weeks. You have to have a very thick skin, and be wildly optimistic. You can get scared, that is natural. But don’t stay scared for long. Get over it, and move forward. Sometimes that means drastically changing a process or an entire strategy. Just do it and move on. Don’t trip over the hurdles, either jump over them, dive under them, or run around them.
