If anyone faced some big hurdles, head-on, it was Gilda Radner, and she’s been an inspiration to millions for decades since her death in 1989. A few of her words to live by:
“Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next.”
— Gilda Radner
Prep for the hurdles
Mindfulness: The Art of Cultivating Resilience — Lynda Klau, Ph.D

“Mind like water” is a way of thinking about the way you react to new challenges: enough, but only as much as necessary. It’s also just one incredibly useful concept from David Allen‘s second most popular book (after the essential Getting Things Done), and this self-guided journey will change the way you see your own path through life. Whatever you do, consider spending some real time honing these skills.
