What matters most in the darkest hours

From “How Will You Measure Your Life?” by Clayton M. Christensen, James Allworth, and Karen Dillon

There’s a reason that the film “It’s a Wonderful Life” has been so resonant for decades: what matters most in the darkest hours of George Bailey’s life are the many personal relationships he has invested in along the way. He recognizes, by the end of the film, that though he is poor, his life is rich in friendships. We all want to feel like George Bailey – but that simply isn’t possible if we haven’t done the work investing in those relationships with friends and family throughout our lives.
