As I write this, Hurricane Dorian is tearing through the carribean and will likley make landfall on the mainland US in about 96 hours.
The lesson is that some things are risks others are facts. Having a key person on a project quit at the wrong time is a risk. Thanksgiving is a fact. Don’t confuse the two.
A hurricane might hit Florida. It might not. Being ready is the difference between life and death.
Things will happen. The important part is how you respond.
I’ve lived through five hurricanes. Trust me: be prepared.
