No doubt, we’re in strange economic times. Sometimes you keep doing what you’re doing…because it’s the right thing to do, because it’s what you’ve been taught to do, because it’s always worked for you.
And sometimes, perhaps times like now, it’s time to re-evaluate those “things”. Good and proseperous and savvy business people would tell you to do that regularly. But sometimes you just don’t want to evaluate anymore, you just want to “do”. To “be” the best person you know how to be and do work that fulfills you.
Yeah, I’m not talking about the proverbial “you” and “people”. In my quest for balanced living I often leave that little slice of the pie chart for later. That fork in the road…not taken. There might be hurdles on that track; I’ve already told you how much I dislike those. The roadblock might be there and I wouldn’t want to waste my time. However, I seem to have myself stuck in a rotary of sorts. It’s a strange rotary…the more I go around, the better I get at it. I don’t think I’m just getting better at chasing my tail, really. I think, I know that I’m getting better at what I DO.
Keeping the main thing the main thing: when it comes to balance, you need to look at vocation and economics. I won’t avoid it…
So do I jump off the rotary? Do I wait for the proper road to be completed and be the first to travel it? Or should I radio ahead, listen to the traffic report, try to read the signs? I don’t know.
We’re in strange economic times. I’m in strange economic times. I look at my business card and my website and I read REALIGN. REEDUCATE. REBUILD. I’ve begun to take a little of my own advice. And I have no idea where these roads are going.
12/40 No avoidance. I’ll evaluate. Realign my thoughts, get some training if needed, and rebuild (or add on, or remodel).
Time passes and you must move on, Half the distance takes you twice as long, So you keep on singing for the sake of the song, After the thrill has gone. (The Eagles)
