This time I agree with the pointy headed boss.
Persistence is a key to success. So is knowing when to quit and move on. The deciding factor is context.
And maybe — just maybe — this is where resilient recovery and resilient adaptability meet.
How bad is it? What are the options? What can be saved? What must be let go? What’s the upside? How bad’s the downside?
What is the context… really?
What is reality?
Ultimately resilience — its strengths, its agility, flexibility, the rapid-firing feedback loops, the relationships and firm foundations — matters in order to more effectively deal with reality.
A willow tree is resilient. It also has no choice but to persist or die. Individuals and communities can uproot and re-root depending on what they understand of reality.
