Could This Change Your Life?

Setbacks should be expected

Embrace personal struggles and opportunities, it’s how we learn and grow.

Setbacks should be expected.

Like the recent meeting about a giant business move forward.

Two days ago, the meeting was cancelled hours before it was to start.

Why this is stressful is because the project is already painfully behind.

The cancelled meeting makes it worse.

Like the college freshman, being able to confront the bad things – my fear and doubt – is significant personal growth.

We can become overconfident to the point of a blind spot.

What?

Our success rate with confidence, and plowing through fear and doubt, may just have a cancerous growth we can’t detect until it can not be ignored.

All of a sudden, we are faced with a business challenge that shouldn’t exist and now it’s so big that it drags the rest of the business down.

What people do, without thinking

Didn’t have Stitch or Forky in my pocket. i always have chap stick and a Glacier pen.

What people do, without thinking.

Habits.

Culture.

Same thing.

Realized we hadn’t played a chess game in the campus library.

Captured the photo above to let our son know i realized it.

Traditions are important to an organization’s culture. Same with a family’s.

This chess photo with chap stick is so insignificant that the ‘save’ will most likely be lost on all but a handful.

Insight: Do your thing. Be intentional. Over-focus.

.think .differently

About everything.

The greatest threat to life balance

Pretty crazy. Yet an obvious reality in corporate America.

The greatest threat to life balance is our evaluation of whether it’s possible or impossible based on our friend group and the people we see at school or at work every day.

In business and in life

Tragic and freak accident six days ago. In six more days, i will arrive at this very spot.

In business and in life:

  • Identify your opportunity
  • Identify your fear
  • Determine your commitment level

The future ahead begins today.

If.

If what?

If your commitment is off the charts.

Why?

Because you have to walk into the forrest (or desert) of your fears.

It’s infinitely easier to back down and live a normal life.

If you could say one thing (work)…

We love you.
