“…something to do.”​

I am an optimistic person by nature. And in my opinion, planning always helps. Before a crisis (or during, if caught off-guard), I have found it important to continuously assess a situation and to consider what the worst possible outcome may be. If I can think of a few options that may have a chance of success, I’m good.

“…keep moving forward.”​

“Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place, and I don’t care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life.  But it ain’t about how hard you hit, it’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward.  That’s how winning is done!” Rocky Balboa – 2006

“Houston, we have a problem…”​

Without a doubt, 1995’s ‘Apollo 13‘, directed by Ron Howard and starring Tom Hanks, is one of my favorite all-time movies. The reason is simple. It is based on a true story, with very little of Hollywood’s famous ‘artistic license’ used, and demonstrates some of the most profound, life-or-death problem-solving concepts I have ever encountered on the big screen. And of course, the Apollo 13 crisis gave us the infamous phrase, “Houston, we have a problem.” So, there’s that.

“…It’s Always Something.”​

As the famous American Comedy show Saturday Night Live (SNL) character, ‘Roseanne Roseannadanna’ (portrayed by the late, great Gilda Radner) was known for saying in the 1970’s: “…it just goes to show you, it’s always something — if it ain’t one thing, it’s another.” …and her more sharply focused and to the point comment: “…it’s always something.”
