When making decisions, it is important to understand the element of TIME.
This is more important now than ever.
While our current crisis – COVID 19 – has turned our world on its head, we are simply in a season.
It is important we do not over-correct and make decisions today that will have negative consequences 12, 18 or 36 months from now.
You’ve heard of the Seventh Generation Principle based on the ancient Iroquois philosophy: When making any decision, always think 7 generations into the past and 7 generations into the future. If your decision makes sense based on history and proves sustainable for the future – a long future – you are on the right path.
In the middle of the current crisis (and make no mistake, this is a crisis), make sure you are making decisions that will make sense in long-term.
Use history as your matrix. Use the future as your guide.
Remain calm. Remain steady. Be patient. Make wise choices.
