Don't let challenges hold you back....


Frank Lloyd Wright believed in designing structures that were in harmony with humanity and its environment, a philosophy he called organic architecture: the most famous example of this is a home he designed called Fallingwater, which is built partly  over a waterfall.  I had the opportunity to learn more about that last week when I was consulting near there: instead of that design being stymied by the site’s geography, it became a challenge and an inspiration. Life can be like that sometimes: many of us are faced with things that are easy, and others not so much – but in the end we have to do them all, and it’s the ones that challenge us the most where we have the opportunity to stretch our abilities and learn that problems and limitations can turn out to be our best friends. When issues arise that challenge you, look for ways to turn them into successes: that’s the best way to learn how to reach your full potential. Don’t let problems keep you from doing great things today.
