The Perfect Example of turning Bad to Good

Greg Thomas

If you’re wondering what goes into taking a bad situation and turning it into a good one, you need look no further than this recent event that happened on the Conan O’Brien show where a guest could not show up and in the new format, all they interview is one guest.

The team decided to interview Conan’s long-time assistant and the idea was more successful than if the original interview had happened.

Whatever you’re working on, it’s never as bad as you think and there is always another option, most likely a creative one, to make it that much better than you’re original plan.

You just have to give it a try and let the chips fall where they may and forget about all the optics.

(And yes, I love Conan).
