During challenging times be it personal, professional or a clients experience. I often go back to this phrase: “All you can do is all you can do” or in my words: do all that you can do and then let it go. Sometimes we have to acknowledge that what we did was not enough. If this is true… well as Pema Chodron says, “The truth is inconvenient.”
People often say that they have done all that they can. I believe they are wrong. The more precise phrase would be that they have done all that they are willing to do. Sharing what you are willing to do takes some cajones. But the brave leaders who state what they are willing to do and actually do it… set an important boundary for themselves and their people. They are not running around shouting about winning at all costs; by the way that sounds insane and inhumane. Not all effort is right effort.
Be accountable, fully accountable for your results.
I think Dr. Seuss wrote a book titled, “Shoulda, coulda, woulda…” or maybe it was a poem? Nevertheless, be fearless about working towards your goals AND be fearless about your peace of mind. No excuses and Be loving. Enjoy the process or life will suck. All you can do is all you can do… allows you to then go up high and see the big picture, take it all in (if you can) and learn.
