A Case for Thick Skin

“Great entrepreneurs are made of gristle and callous”. ~ Kevin O’Leary

Anyone who has ever developed a callous knows they result from hard work and persevering despite friction. They serve a valuable purpose in that they protect the wearer from damage and enable continued vigorous activity.

If this means that tough situations are to be sought and appreciated, what can we do to stretch ourselves today?  What might we take on that we had deemed too difficult?

The balancing act here is to develop the hard determination it takes to stay the course despite challenging circumstances while maintaining sensitivity and insight into the personal nature of our business relationships.
