There was certainly a whole bunch of hubbub heading into these Olympic Games in Brazil. Río de Janeiro was being castigated as the worst ever venue before it got started. Certainly, there was much ado about polluted waters, politics, and Zika carrying mosquitoes.
It’s not quite been a week and what’s happened? The games have been nearly flawless to watch. Great athletes performing incredible feats; terrific stories about real people overcoming obstacles; and remembering how much sports can unite people.
Is it perfect. No. No Olympic Games – summer or winter – that I’ve ever seen have been. There’s no need for them to be. While the concerns had aspects of seriousness to them, the anxiety they created is the equivalent of the mountain and molehill axiom.
Take a look at your life – business and professional. How many times do we make mountains out of molehills, but can’t seem to be as resilient as Río appears to be?
