My new wise old saying

I have been using some of my grandma’s wise old folk sayings when running Agile workshops and courses lately.

So it was interesting when I went to a talk by Catherine DeVrye (a great author on customer service) that she had a wide range of traditional sayings to apply to modern issues in customer service.

So, while I was reading one of her books on the train home, I had an inspirational moment where I invented my own wise “old” saying.

With apologies to people who have probably invented it before, my new motto for at least the next month is …

Setbacks are inevitable, but opportunities are optional.
