Completely Different?

What if our boss had to work two days a week in far less optimal conditions, every single week?

What if our boss had to work two days a week in far less optimal conditions, every single week?

 

Getting ready to leave in a day for an eight day California trip.

Third trip in as many weeks.

Knowing there are only 24 hours at home between each trip really focuses the planning to survive and balance.

Insane what focus and discipline can accomplish when we refuse to quit.

She said she just had to chuckle at their attempt to model world class leadership

Young girl from TV commercial
Business folk get a small handful of extraordinary leaders in their lifetime

 

She said she just had to chuckle at their attempt to model world class leadership. So I asked her why.

She said because they were so obviously unprepared it was embarrassing, and because she acted oblivious to it all, they both thought she was not aware.

It was a big, once-a-year, close-out-the-year type meeting. One of those meetings that reflects the entire body of a year’s worth of art work.

Ever have that happen?

We Were So Poor…

Most people have a tough climb, to earn what they have and where they are in life.

Some mountains are financial, some health, some career, some education. And some people climb them all. Some don’t climb any.

It’s just the way things work.

We were so poor is a June 26 post that posed the question, “How poor were you?”

We were so poor when we moved to Florida 27 years ago:

  • We only had one car
  • Daily, I bicycled 36 miles roundtrip to work
  • Granted an extra low mortgage rate for our $47,000 home

Mother Teresa & Jimmy Buffett

Mother Teresa & Jimmy Buffett hold very special places in my heart.  They seem to have nothing in common, right?

And yet I have aspirations to be like both.

Everyday I wake up with the grandiose goal to save the world – you know, to serve the poorest of the poor.

And each day I also want to savior the world – you know, Carpe Diem, seize the day.  Enjoy life for all it’s worth.

This makes it hard to plan the day.
