What if you only had one more Summer?

Windermere Prep swimming pool
This is more beautiful than i imagined.

 

Windermere Prep swimming pool
Final regular season swim meet is tomorrow and i will miss because of business travel. This is worse than i imagined.

 

It felt good, yet incredibly weird, to so casually tell Howard that next Summer is the last Summer i’m planning to have.

Leadership’s key attribute is the existence of a clear, concise, and compelling vision.

PS. It would be lovely to live vibrantly past 60. Not planning on it. Sure, i’m hopeful, but i refuse to let the notion of more time postpone living like i’m on borrowed time.

Every day is a gift.

This is something i need to accept, embrace, and rejoice in

Corn field 10 feet tall
It took 19 years before i saw the corn grow. It was 1978, i was a college sophomore.

 

She was originally going to be the project manager and coordinate the efforts of a web developer, a sales team of two, and a graphic artist.

Besides intentionally not being involved in sales calls, it turns out she’s doing everything else though, except the toughest website coding.

This is dramatically different than first envisioned.

This is something i need to accept, embrace, and rejoice in.

It has created challenges that i didn’t anticipate.

i’m confident it eliminated challenges that would have happened had the plan worked as planned.

Either way, it is what it is and i’m grateful for all of it.

Crisis or celebration?

The answer is a no-brainer.

It took two months for me to see it though.

Better late than never.

PS. The photo from yesterday reminded me when you see the corn field everyday, you never notice it’s growth. When you go away to college for a few weeks and return home for a brief visit, you are astonished how much it grew while your were gone.

Packing up was easy. And without the books and food i traveled with going up, coming back was even lighter.

A light load makes the journey easier.

The journey is more focused too, because there’s less stuff.

We know this.
