John F. Kennedy once said, "When written in Chinese, the word 'crisis' is composed of two characters. One represents danger
and the other represents opportunity
Powerful stuff, right? Except, JFK's statement was misunderstood
. But I wanted to use it here anyway to show the idea of turning a crisis into something good
has been around for ages.
There's the growing resilience
as well that comes with getting through a big crisis. Kind of like building muscles – the more you use them, the stronger they get.
And let's not forget that when the s* hits the fan it brings people together
through shared experience and renewed focus to solve the problem at hand.
