A Note From the Editor:
As we recently mentioned, we are reposting popular blog posts while Ron is recovering from some health issues. This series from last year might be a good one to revisit.
How do we face adversity? This is a difficult one for me to write. Mainly because I’ve been in my own set of adversities. Over the last several weeks I have been back in the hospital and had further operations as I deal with my inherited liver disease. But, I’m not the only one. I’ve seen several of my friends deal with
- Cancer that requires infusions several times a month for the rest of his life.
- Irritable bowel syndrome—that can put another friend in the hospital at any moment.
- Parkinson’s disease.
- Loss of a long-time spouse.
Adversity can touch any of us at any time. So how do we deal with it?
Or consider how these categories map to the types of regret Daniel Pink discusses.
