“Hate,” the French movie from 1995, features a famous scene with the legendary words: “Jusqu’ici tout va bien.” That loosely translates to: “up until now, all is well.”
Until it isn’t. We all have different coping mechanisms or things we do to escape imminent danger. For entrepreneurs, one of those things to run to is often work.
The scene continues with: “the most important isn’t the fall, it’s the landing.” We all fall, time and time again. You can be either face down on the floor, a split-second after you tripped, or experience an endless fall that seems to last forever.
Anticipate the landing. Make it as soft as you can. Be kind to yourself, and ask for help.
