This is a really thought provoking piece relating to the attachment that is formed over time when working in a family firm and clearly puts into context the attachment that develops too.
It really comes to the fore at a time of inter-generational transition and it does need to be addressed and acknowledged. Both incoming and outgoing generations have attachments to the business, the legacy and more besides.
Well worth a read.
Why do we make life and work so difficult? It doesn’t have to be that way. Every morning we activate a switch when we open our eyes. We choose—consciously or unconsciously—how we want to live the day. We can choose the path of confidence, full of joy, love, curiosity and freedom. Or we can choose the path driven by fear, littered by worry, disappointment, and suffering. The choice is ours.
