“When one door closes, another opens. But we often look so regretfully upon the closed door that we don’t see the one that has opened for us.” Helen Keller
Businesses can glean some encouragement from this remarkably resilient woman. Plenty of doors will close on attempted new product developments, new customer pursuits, and new advertising concepts so rather than fretting over the failures, we must look for all the valuable lessons arising and for the new doors opening. Same goes for all the doors that close and open along career journeys.
Keep a look out for those open doors … they are everywhere. If Helen Keller could see them, then we have no excuse.
