I had a long conversation with Ron Robinson today.
At 70 years old, Ron recently closed his doors after 43 years of retail – his timing was impeccable. Weeks later, the pandemic would force every store on the planet to call it quits. But, Ron left on his own terms, under his own timing.
“Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.”
Ron was quoting Dr. Seuss and it’s a proverb I’ve heard before. In this time of great transitions, it’s a subtle shift in perspective that can save the day.
Don’t cry because it’s over.
Because it happened.
