Learning to Surf Chaos Instead of Drowning In It

franklintempleton.jpgChaos and change are a part of our lives. In the FM community, we face quite a bit of it every day. We can either choose to flail about and drown in the chaos, or we can learn to surf the big waves that keep coming at us. If you have the sense like you are "never caught up" or are overwhelmed, or worse yet, you wake up in the middle of the night thinking about work, then you need surfing lessons. This is not a Zen philosophical approach. This is a practical nuts and bolts training to give you the skills you need to embrace chaos
