As Rob would say, “On an adventure, you know that there is going to be a lot of uncertainty, pressure, setback and opportunity, but you cannot control when, or where, or how these will turn up. But what you can control is your attitude and mindset towards them, and that makes all the difference. It’s the same in the business world – globally, right now there is much uncertainty, pressure, setback and opportunity, and it is vital to control our attitude towards these challenges – so we can persevere through the setbacks and make the most of the opportunities.”
