Leadership Skills: Keep Calm and Carry On

The phrase 'Keep Calm and Carry On' was designed by the British government in 1939, at the beginning of the second world war. It was intended to raise the morale of the British public in times of trouble.

The slogan disappeared from view for many years until it resurfaced in 2003 and began to be used again on mugs, posters, coffee mats, etc.

Its message is highly relevant today, since there is too much talk of despair and gloom in the press, on TV, in politics and on social media.

The truth about the future is this..... Our future will be whatever we make of it.

Our future will be whatever we make of it

If we lose heart, lose confidence, lose our sense of courage, and entrepreneurialism, then our chances for the future are lessened, accordingly.

If we don't lose heart, if we keep our confidence, keep our courage, and if we do develop our sense of entrepreneurialism, then our chances for the future are improved, accordingly.

Keep Calm and Carry On

Irrespective of your thoughts on whether or not Brexit is good or bad, the fact is that the UK will soon be making its negotiations to leave the EU.

Improve and Succeed

Our job is to succeed and we cannot do that if we keep going over old ground.

We need now to be thinking about how we can maximise our profits in the new situation.

  • What New Markets can you access?
  • What Old Markets can you sustain?
  • What can you do to make the best progress in the minimum time?

The answers to these important questions can only be found by the rational mind.

The emotional mind - the mind full of fear, or anger - cannot function properly.

So do what the minister said;

Keep calm and carry on.

Figure out what you can do to improve your chances for the future, and then do it.
