Make the Obstacle Benefit You

What’s your reaction if I recommend that you“Make the obstacle benefit you”? When I suggested this to someone recently, he literally laughed out loud AT me. I will say that my friend, John, is a rather logical and analytical guy and my suggestion seemed random and illogical to him.

That said, John was open for a debate and I never shy away from those. The more we chatted, the more he realized that I was challenging him to take a problem, solve it, and create additional value from the turnaround. That is was ready and excited to do!

This is something I aspire to as well.

Have a great day,
