The economy is good, then its bad, then it’s good again. You are getting veeerrry sleepy. The hypnotic effect of this giant pendulum swinging back and forth can hypnotize you into a “do nothing” trance… worried if things will ever get better, frozen with inaction when you really should be capitalizing on it.
Crisis brings change. Change brings opportunity. Blue chip stocks can be purchased at bargain prices. Suits are “buy one get one free” at the Men’s Wearhouse. Car dealers are actually willing to make deals. Your next big success story at work will be twice as sweet because you did it during a recession.
Think of it this way. Airplane pilots pride themselves on having the same number of takeoffs as they do landings. And throughout history, there have been the same number of recessions as there are recoveries. The next recovery is coming around soon. What can you do right now to accelerate it?
