January 13, 2016, TGIW: Unhumping Hump Day…Rigid Flexibility

“Unforeseen surprises are the rule in science, not the exception. Remember: Stuff happens.” –Leonard Susskind

Even us late starters may have at least some design in place by now for our new year of possibilities.

We’ve all heard that “Man plans and God laughs.”

Nonetheless, we move forward with any plan (and that’s always better than no plan).

Good for us. Let’s just keep the door open for from whence our good will come.

It may be our organized, detailed efforts and tenacious sticking-to-it that bring our results through the front door.

Yet it may be our openness and flexibility which allows them to come through the back door.

Got rigid flexibility?

“Everything’s not going to go perfect. You’re going to have some losses that you’re going to have to bounce back from and some things that are a little unforeseen that you’re going to have to deal with.” –Tony Dungy
