When your plans must pause, it's no use panicking.
It's no use casting judgment on yourself, your abilities or your prospects.
It's no use blaming others, the environment around you, the situation or the obstacle.
Any temptation to bin your plans should be swapped for the goal of recycling, once practical again.
When our plans must be paused, it's an opportunity to reset; no matter how recently you hit the reset button, when is it ever harmful to reevaluate?
When your plans pause, it pays to hit the reset button, reflect on what happened and refocus on the future.
Keep the negative thoughts at bay; they only seek to throw you further off course, not to help you get back on track.
And in any case, does taking a pause ever really mean we're off track or is it just an essential part of the journey anyway?
