Had To Do It

Life Is Full Of Dragons To Overcome
Life Is Full Of Dragons To Overcome

Many of you are waiting for the economy to pick up, before you’re willing to work harder and more creatively than in your entire life. Meanwhile, you complain about your situation.

We’re human. These things happen. But why?

Work with me here. When I’m at the track doing speed work and it’s a windy day, I insist on running into the wind. My times will be slower which isn’t as motivating as seeing the wind-aided times.

When doing road work, every time there’s a hill, I run faster up the hill than down. At the gym, no runner works harder on their core than me.

Why? Because the long way is the short cut.

When race day comes, guess who’s the most prepared?

Back To The Saturday Run

We Ran Through Windermere, Where Tiger Lives
We Ran Through Windermere, Where Tiger Lives

One of the challenges with our business world is that the people who are capable of decision making are not capable of keeping up with technology. Many reasons for this, and it really doesn’t even matter.

Yet the people who keep up with technology and understand it’s potential, particularly with social media, are not in decision-making positions.

This forms an unfortunate paradox.

Every once in a while there are exceptions to the rule. I planted a seed with a fellow midlife runner on our Saturday run. Not sure he got it. Or that he can even remotely consider it.

Sooner, rather than later, this will create an opportunity point. Or not. And so it goes. Life. Hard decision. Risks. Boundary pushing.

But the potential rewards are enormous. Gigantic.

This is one of my favorite things about running. And about life.

Reality Blogging?

Last week I posted about an entrepreneurial idea.

What if everything you did could be considered a business expense?

My Accountant friend looked at me, while we were jogging, as if I had lost my mind.

I can’t expense a hair cut, but what if the whole experience was part of some bigger picture? A look at an ordinary life, trying to change the world, one blog post at a time?

People said Napster’s business model would fail, plus, they said, it was illegal.

Anyone subscribe to Napster or Rhapsody music service?

Just because no one has done it and everyone says it’s not legal, doesn’t mean the world (or one lone soul) isn’t ready to embrace it.

No, Seriously, I Do
