“I can’t change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.”
- Jimmy Dean
The lesson to learn here is that sometimes you need to learn to work with what is presented to you instead of forcing yourself in a different direction. Much how the advice for dealing with a riptide on the beach is to swim sideways and out of it before proceeding back to shore, the same can be said in life and business matters. Sometimes it is easier to accomplish a goal by taking a different approach to get there.
