Uncertainty and setbacks

I’m more convinced than ever that how a person deals with (and prepares for) uncertainty and setback is an indicator of how effective they will be at their art and craft.

Some of us are naturally resilient and laid back, but this doesn’t mean that people who are naturally anxious and easily flustered can’t thrive under adverse circumstances — they just have to work harder at preparation and prevention.
