How to get out of the hole?

Sometimes you have to get a little dirty!

The first half of 2016 is history. I trust that you are off to a great start, but whether you are ahead or behind you’ll have to keep hustling to have a great year.

One of the frequently asked questions I’ve received this year is “how have you been able to keep yourself or company moving forward in trying circumstances?”

You probably don’t know this, but I come from a long line of storytellers.  My paternal grandmother was an unusually gifted griot.  I am sure listening to her shaped my public speaking. Today’s post answers the FAQ above and salutes the griots’ tradition.


What unexpected holes have you fallen into this year?

If the usual escape methods fail,  think through unconventional approaches to getting back on track?

  1. This is a great story and very timely for me! Maybe it was coming back to work after the holiday weekend or maybe the Seattle gloom, but this week has been a tough one. Time to get out of the hole…

    Also, I’m so excited to try some Focus@Will! Thank you very much for running the giveaway.

    • The week after a holiday is always tough. I am glad you enjoyed the story and motivated to get out of the hole.

  2. What a great commentary. The measure of anyone is how they “get back up” when life or business is handing them “curve balls” . Sometimes the solution is taking a different and unknown course but
    the willingness to try, fail and correct is the measure of a true leader and successful business person.
    This is the road to success.

  3. With such violence in the world; this is an important message.
    People will keep shoveling dirt on you, but its what you do with it that defines your character.
    Another profound message, my friend.

  4. Story telling at its finest! I believe that the most difficult part of being in a hole is overcoming the immediate panic or worry about the situation. If we are able to conquer those fears and assess the situation for what it truly is, only then can we begin to figure out how to climb out of our predicament. Thank you for the inspiration!

  5. What’s up everyone, it’s my first pay a visit at this site, and
    post is really fruitful in support of me, keep up posting these types
    of content.
