Spiritual resourcefulness—good for people and for business

Yesterday, your textile manufacturing business, which your grandfather started ninety years ago, was highly productive and profitable. Last night, a fire devastated several of the factory's buildings. Today, you stand in the midst of that destruction—with the future of your business, its 2,400 employees and their families, and an economically depressed community awaiting your response. Will you be devastated? Or will you find resources to get yourself and the business up and running again? This was the predicament facing Aaron Feuerstein, owner of Malden Mills, in Methuen, Massachusetts, in mid-December last year.

Feuerstein found resources within himself right on the spot: fortified in part by his nearly nightly habit of reading Shakespeare and the Talmud, he found the strength not to weep; instead, he was telling himself, "I have to be creative." He told a reporter, "Maybe there's some way out of it." And he found a way out of it.
