I bet I’ve heard the word, “overwhelmed” seventy times this week. People are telling me they’re overwhelmed, they don’t know where to start, they don’t know what to do. It’s almost as though they’re stirring a frenzy in their mind to the point of paralysis.
There is a lot of hand-wringing these days over problems. Problems in the world and in the country. Problems with the pandemic and with healthcare. Problems in the real estate industry and inventory shortage. Mahatma Gandhi famously directed us to, “Be the change you wish to see in the world,” and being the change starts by shifting focus from the problem to the solution, from inertia to action.
