These are tough times

The World’s financial system is going through a crisis, countries such as Germany are entering a depression.  That’s the news that I hear every day in the news.
Are these tough times?
Strangely enough, my business is doing quite well considering the current economic climate.  I think that people are more willing to invest a small amount in having a computer problem fixed, rather than the larger – more tempting – amount of buying a new one instead.  That is, of course, good for me as a service provider, even if it’s not such good news for manufacturers.
Despite this, I’ve still decided that it is time to start reading Robert H. Schuller’s book “Tough Times Never Last, But Tough People Do!“, something I first read about on another blog.  The first chapter alone, in which he talks about one of his own experiences, left me thinking “OK, it’s not that bad yet”, and I can’t wait to read the rest of the book.
