“When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.”
– Dr. Viktor Frankl –
Yesterday (4.29.2020) was the 75th anniversary of the Allied liberation of Dachau – the very first Nazi concentration camp. Dachau’s iron gates chillingly proclaimed the lie Arbeit Mach Frei. Yet as Victor Frankel wrote years later, internal work on one’s self, and not physical work, enabled the only possible freedom for those interned. So whenever you confront a difficult situation beyond your control, remember that directing your efforts inward may be the only way to effect meaningful change.
Stay safe. Stay healthy. Be strong. Lead well.
