There are four ways to respond to a crisis. Maximize it. Minimize it. Advertise it. Analyze it.

Maximizing is to exaggerate the crisis. Minimizing is to understate the crisis. Advertising is to tell the whole world about it. Analyzing is extracting useful information from it.

Crisis is merely concentrated information. Adversity is simply your enemies' reaction to your progress. Taking the time to analyze it will benefit you.


"In the day of prosperity be joyful, but in the day of adversity consider: God also hath set the one over against the other, to the end that man should find nothing after him."

(Ecclesiastes 7:14)
