Right now everyone is watching, listening, and talking about the financial situation.
Whatever legislation is passed will not prove to be the most important outcome. It will be how you choose to manage yourself through this and how you choose to view and live life as a result.
The financial chaos is a test of willingness to learn, willingness to change, and willingness to exercise the kind of discernment that leads to wisdom. It is designed to profoundly shape your character, so it's no time to use a cheat-sheet (that's what got us here).
From a leadership perspective, the self-leadership you demonstrate now will help define your organizational leadership capability in the future.
Remember: You can't control the totality of your circumstances. You can control how you respond. Those responses will tell you--and those around you--who you really are.
And no one will be paying a bit of attention to the balance in your 401k.
