In a time of “hardship” it is not advisable to “just let things go” - instead, we need to act thoughtfully.  Consider the following:

What is the nature of the hardship?   Is it avoidable, or can it not be avoided?  With the right attitude, hardships can be overcome.  In the times of hardship a country needs a great leader, associated with loyal officials and supported by the people with one heart and one mind.  This is a time when the people need to keep still. It is a time for self-reflection - it is not a time to give-up.  Sometimes we need to “yield to the situation and wait for a better time”.  Overcoming hardship depends on the correct time, situation and companions.

39-Hardship - Focus - Line 1: This is not a favorable time. It is the beginning of the hardship.  It is better to seek an understanding of the situation before acting.  If one acts blindly, there will be a fall into the darkness of Water.  It is time to Keep Still.
