I think it’s really important to start from a position of strength, over vulnerability or weakness to build our resiliency. This is one idea to build a foundation that can be used to navigate our VUCA world.
So, here I am on New Year’s Eve and I feel like I am about to come to bat with Ducks on the Pond.
In the game of baseball, the phrase “Ducks on the Pond” means that the bases are loaded. The hitter coming up next has a great opportunity to drive in up to four runs with a hit — a grand-slam home run would be awesome! It also conveys a sense of optimism – when teammates call out this phrase, it’s really anticipating something good happening, even if it doesn’t always work out.
