One morning there was a note on the monastery bulletin board. It was a picture of 2 monks sitting in meditation with faces of total disbelief. Under the picture it said: “Nothing happens next. This is it”

This is as relevant to me after 30 years in business as it was when I was a monk. We often fail to recognize harsh realities by dreaming about the future and wind up making bad decisions. By understanding where you actually are, paths forward become clearer.

Live in the present.
