"writing has a warming quality for the Soul" Well said Tommy…
Years ago I read "Colin Powell with Tony Koltz. It worked for me. In Life and Leadership" I wrote down some quotes to remember. They apply today. Some of them make me smile.
It ain't as bad as you think, it will look better in the morning.
Get mad, then get over it.
Avoid having your ego so close to your position that when your position falls, your ego goes with it.
It can be done. Presume things can be done until the facts and analysis pile up against it.
Be careful what you choose, you may get it.
Don't let adverse facts stand in the way of a good decision.,
You can't make someone else's choices. Don't let someone else make yours.
Check small things.
Remain calm. Be kind.
Have a vision. Be demanding.
Don't take counsel of your fears or naysayers,.
Perpetual optimism is force multiplier
