Totally and completely out of my control…

BY SETH GODIN

Gravity, for example.

I can’t do a thing about gravity. Even if I wanted to move to Jupiter or the moon for a change in gravity, it’s inconceiv­able that I could.

On the other hand, there are lots of things I can do to control my reaction to gravity. I can take Alexander classes or get in better shape. I can avoid situations where gravi­ty makes me uncomfortable (the trapeze, for example). I can choose to not whine about gravity and its effects.

There are countless forces in our lives that are out of our con­trol. That doesn’t mean we can’t do anything about how they influence our work and our life…
