Unassuming goodness

Walking up the steps after yesterday morning’s beach walk, this curious creature and i shared a few moments.
The intricate detail was at eye level because of the staircase, making it easy to be close.
The evening sky from the East carried patches of blue sky. The staircase.

Unassuming goodness.

Self-reflection time.

Perspective.

Organization.

Teamwork.

Vision.

Fun.

All of these are immeasurably valuable gifts.

Utterly unassuming.

Totally life changing.

Be prepared

Walking through neighborhood with headlamp. The small and lightweight lamp is as bright as a car headlight.

With the recent “fall back” clock change, our morning walks are in the dark. Our subdivision has no street lights.

One especially dark morning, the idea was born to wear the headlamp.

The headlamp was purchased in Glacier National Park and carried daily in the pack.

Never expected to be hiking in the dark.

Which is why it was carried daily all Summer.

Pack as light as possible, but what happens if you unexpectedly find yourself in an unexpected situation?

Making decisions about things i never saw coming

Passport info
New Passport arrived yesterday, in half the time they promised.

 

Making decisions about things i never saw coming is interesting because i wrestle with accepting my ignorance, and rejoice with my discoveries (and growth).

It’s quite possible this year will see me pay out wages equal to or greater than my entire income last year.

Never saw it coming.

And now?

Now i can’t imagine making a difference without it.

PS. Just sent an email to someone i’m working with stating that it’s absurd to hire an amazing person and then tell them what to do. She is grateful.

Practiced listening, just didn’t think it would take so long

Old school rotary dial phone
Who could have ever envisioned the iPhone?

 

Organized enough to be able to invest in a three-hour call yesterday. That’s a long time for a Saturday call. Yes, some things i wanted to get done didn’t happen, but none of them caused anxiety.

Why?

Because i’m almost always in an offensive position, meaning i rarely work in the “oh my gosh, i’m falling behind” space.

Please note, to stay (mostly) in an offensive position is grueling work. Staying in a defensive position is also grueling.

It seems too me if the work is grueling no matter which position, why would i pick anything other than offense?

Day To Day

All it takes is one time consuming detour today

Magic Kingdom main entrance
It was packed for a Monday, January 4th. Leisurely burned nearly two hours for a run before the setback.

 

All it takes is one time consuming (one to three hour) detour in our day and we quickly feel the stress of having our daily plan come apart. Recovering from these set backs ripples into the next day as well. Heaven forbid we have two days in a row like this.
