It is easy to lose perspective and focus on the things that we cannot control; worrying about what could have been, if only, and focusing on the situations beyond our grasp.

However, as Seth Godin often says, ‘You don’t have control over the outcome of your projects—but you do control how hard you try’.

Being able to take a step back from an obstacle and recognize what you can actually control is an incredibly useful skill in taking decisive action and finding solutions.

No matter how tough the situation may seem, resolutely focusing on what is under your influence will bring clarity to even the worst storms.
