Get ahead of it

It's not easy to deal with tough situations. You can feel the weight on your shoulders or the pain in your gut. You can hear the pain in others by the quiver in their voice or by the way they become "small" and almost disappear.

What we don't fully appreciate, though, is how difficult it is facing every day with that issue hanging over you. What can you do?

You can get ahead of the problem.

Much of the time our frustration and paralysis about an ongoing problem is based on the past--what happened, what didn't or isn't working, etc. We're living, to an extent, in the past. If we can muster up the courage to make a decision, a change that will position us for the future, all of sudden, the weight is off our shoulders and our voice doesn't quiver.

Business can be tough. Tough decisions are hard. But avoiding the decisions only makes things worse.
