Sooner or later you will face a crisis of belief. It seems to happen more often these days and it shows up everywhere. A revered leader is dismissed over hubris and egotism. A venerable church splits over a contemporary moral issue. A veteran teacher struggles with a new job evaluation process. A loyal employee is laid off due to a decision made in another city over numbers on a spreadsheet and shareholder value.
Crisis reveals hidden truth. You learn what people really believe when their credibility is at stake and it’s surprising to learn how indifferent and selfish we tend to be.
Adjust your lifestyle to accommodate mobility and flexibility. Save money in the good times. When it all goes to hell, then go make your own meaning. In fact, just go make your own meaning, period.
