overcome challenges

“The carpenter doesn’t show up to the job with a single hammer, and a single nail.”

“To be successful, we need to think of ourselves as a toolbox. A vast array of skills and capacities that can adapt to take on any problem, from any angle. The carpenter hones his craft through focused work with specific tools, but he mustn’t lose sight of its role in the bigger picture. Adaptability is everything to him, as no two “jobs” are the same. Like the carpenter, we expect the challenges, uncertainty, adversity and negativity… but we have an even greater expectation, that we will overcome them.”

“No mud, no lotus”…

“The mud produces a beautiful blossom, known as the lotus. Some of the most beautiful things in life come from the most adverse conditions. It’s easy to chalk up an achievement to luck, or something someone was born with. What’s harder to admit is that said individual put in an incredible amount of effort, perseverance, dedication, and resilience over repeated failure, time and time again, to get to where they are.”

We seek the mud. We know what it brings.
