Focus and The Fellowship of the Ring

“I wish it need not have happened in my time,” said Frodo.
“So do I,” said Gandalf, “and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”
(The Fellowship of the Ring, Tolkien)

So remember:

  • Bad happens
  • Bad happens even to you
  • You must embrace what has already happened, learn from it, master it and then focus on doing your best to improve it
