Rise above the circumstances and Act!

He sounded flustered, full of anger.


First few minutes, I established that he was in the Victim mode; struggling with why me? He wanted to understand what his legal rights were.


His company asked him to quit, and he was resisting this change. For someone with family & financial liabilities, like education and marriage loan, this is never easy.


Me: What are your top personal priorities?


He: 3 months of cash flow & medical coverage for the family.


Me: What do you have for sure?


He: 3 months of cash.


Me: When your revenue is getting impacted, what should you do?


He: Restructure my expenses.


Me: And the biggest expenses are?


He: Loan liabilities and medical during COVID.


Me: Can your loan be restructured?


He: Yes (eureka!)


Me: And can you buy medical coverage?


He: Yes, I should do that. But my Lifestyle?


Me: For a significant part of life, you have seen life in a village with basics, right?


He: Yes.


Me: Did you manage to do well?


He: Yeah. Acted rather than complain.


Then came the toughest one on accountability

Me: What signals about the unit did you pretend to ignore?

He: It was showing signs of going down eight months back. I ignored it. I should have acted. I am somewhere responsible for this situation.


Accountability is about accepting things, rising above the circumstances and taking actions.
