The lights went out at the *Big Game* and everything changed. (Supposedly, we're not allowed to say the name of the contest without signing a licensing agreement with the NFL.) Anyway, back to last night...one team was creaming the other, and then BAM! The lights went out in half of the stadium, necessitating a half hour stoppage of the game while they figured out who tripped on the cord and the proper launch sequence to reboot the lights.
Once the lights came back up, the team that was getting pasted came roaring back and actually made a game of it. They regrouped, regathered, and recharged. The other team seemed a bit lost for awhile, as if they hadn't quite realized the game was back on.
Which got me to thinking about how I handle unexpected change. Do I regroup, or do I lose my focus? Do I see an opportunity, or does it derail me?
How about you? How do you treat unexpected events in your life?
Did you watch the *Big Game*? What was your favorite commercial? Here was one of mine, a continuation of one that aired during the game: El Plato Supremo. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AVqJc935dqo (Thanks to Elizabeth S. for pointing me to this video. :) )
