Resilience in every form
Here's a great example of combining resilience, problem-solving, being of service, and seizing an opportunity. Recently, healthcare workers in Oregon were on their way back from a vaccination site when a trailer crashed on the snowy road leaving travellers stranded for hours. Carrying precious cargo the volunteer workers had a choice. Stay in the car with the heaters on and surely the vaccines will spoil, or take the initiative, be resilient, step into the cold and find a new solution. Rather than let the shots expire from lack of proper refrigeration the volunteers went car door to car door in the snow asking stranded drivers if they wanted to be vaccinated. Living by their mission and mantra "the number one rule right now is nothing gets wasted". There is so much gold in this short story when considering mission, problem-solving, innovation, resilience, greatness, and just doing the right thing in the face of a problem and hardship. Great story. GB
