Plan for it to end

Daisies
Anomaly? It happens. A few days ago driving Going-to-the-Sun Road for the final time before heading home.

 

Plan for it to end. Literally a four day notice. Thankful for the time we had and what we accomplished together in 90 days.

Is there a chance it will continue?

Of course.

Remain optimistic, keep moving forward, and expect the unexpected.

Given the chance we almost always avoid it

Gapingvoid art
Metaphorically speaking, you need to want change as much as you want your next breath.

 

Given the chance to avoid change, we’ll likely take it.

Given the chance, we’ll interpret our opportunity to change as too difficult, too time consuming, too disruptive, and too painful.

Given the chance, we’d rather talk about how miserable uncomfortable we are than do anything that will change our circumstances.

First impulse was to walk away without a second thought

Potential business opportunity from a Facebook message.

 

Will this insignificant business opportunity be significant?

First impulse was to walk away without a second thought.

Why?

Because the fee is ridiculously low.

What the vendor is offering in exchange for four days of work isn’t even remotely close to what i charge for a 60-90 minute Keynote speech.

So i started asking, “What intangible benefit(s) is disguised behind the price tag?”

Suddenly, i became intrigued.

This will prepare me for next year

Last night at Walgreens.

 

Business leadership starts with personal victories (and failures).

Going to have to use oral pills to accomplish what monthly injections used to accomplish.

Springtime, and pollen season, in Orlando begins late January or early February. Today is February 5.

Will be able to resume weekly injections in March.

This will prepare me for next year.

This year however, i’ll have to rely on pills.

Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Beauty is being true to yourself, by the way.
