It seems that every day brings something different about our “new normal.” And though much is new; nothing seems normal. We are constantly needing to adapt, reverse course, shift, adjust, restructure, and change our approaches, methods and techniques on a dime. We plan on something working out a certain way only to find out it has become something radically different. It is then we must remember the words of John Wooden when he wrote, “Things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out.” Though his words are far easier to read than to put into practice, they are nonetheless so very true.
