Here’s ONE Method amongst others, we can ALL use during these tough times to heal, repair and go forward!
How Interesting is this fellow Supply Chain Members and ALL Leaders? This could be ONE way to go through these tough economic times and broken supply chains!
In Japan, broken objects are often repaired with gold. The flaw is seen as a unique piece of the object’s history, which adds to its beauty. Consider this when you feel broken.
Kintsugi is the Japanese art of putting broken pottery pieces back together with gold — built on the idea that in embracing flaws and imperfections, you can create an even stronger, more beautiful piece of art. Every break is unique and instead of repairing an item like new, the 400-year-old technique highlights the “scars” as a part of the design. Using this as a metaphor for healing ourselves teaches us an important lesson: Sometimes in the process of repairing things that have broken, we create something more unique, beautiful, and resilient.

Kumai, further states that: “You won’t realize your full potential until you go through the tough times’.
