No Pressure. No Diamonds.

The assassin’s bullet shot through the dark.

It missed its intended target by inches.

President-Elect Franklin D. Roosevelt

Blood splattered as it hit the mayor of Chicago instead.

Despite being so close to death, Roosevelt didn’t finch.

The difference between people who succeed or fail is their ability to handle unexpected pressure.

As we celebrate President’s Day weekend, and you’re a leader, President, or a CEO — take a moment to reflect on one of the most important traits as a leader:

How are you being when you’re under pressure?

How well do you treat family and friends close to you?

How well do you handle disappointment?

How open and willing you are to new ideas?

How consistently do you keep promises you make to yourself and others?

How quickly do you forgive?

How you are being today?

Wishing you a relaxing opportunity to just BE — on President’s Day weekend!
