If events of the week ahead take you back to late September and early October, try not to spend too much time figuring out the why’s and pointing a finger at the culprits but focus instead on finding a solution. Perhaps someone failed to warn you about a developing problem in the hopes that it would resolve itself or maybe your focus was engaged elsewhere so you missed a signal. Whatever the reasons you cannot wind back the tape, you have to find a new strategy. And there will be one, even if at first you cannot see it. There’s not a lot of joy to be had at the moment, and you won’t be the only one tut-tutting at people’s behaviour, but it will pass.
