When it rains it pours

 

The video has many elements i do not condone: drinking excessively, not working toward compromise and no harmony in a relationship, and gambling.

The video does, however, contain the singer’s artistry, which i think is brilliant.

It also contains a catchy chorus…

“When it rains it pours.”

 

Yesterday, i confirmed a contract with a client who emailed me 48-hours prior with a speaker request at Universal Studios.

So lucky.

Also yesterday, a client i’ve been speaking with for 120 days – and who’s association has never paid for a speaker – let me know they finally raised the funds and have approved my offer. “Please send the contract right away” was the gist of the text message.

Man, when it rains it pours.

i realize today’s posts contain an edgy, almost boastful karma.

While it’s not the intention, i realize that a strength, overused, may become a liability.

As karma and serendipity would have it, the first client, above, shared this website containing the post about strengths overused, here.

Perhaps the only defense one could muster (because strengths absolutely can become liabilities) is this note from Steve Jobs.
