Ann Naylor in her Huffington Post article mentions a Cannes Festival movie Biutiful and writes an interesting article on powerlessness. What is about loosing control of situations that brings out the possible best and worse in us?
I life and in this economy and job market, we have to deal with so many situations where we don’t have control and have to accept (or not accept) the circumstances pretty much as they are. She discusses a total of fifteen things we can do in these situations of powerlessness.
I think it’s a worthwhile read to help us frame these difficult situations in ways that can be productive.
Hope this helps.
