Yesterday met up with someone I mentor, and in the conversation found out that a goal they shot for had passed by. So instead of continuing to shoot for it they choose to go in another direction. The goal they wanted was not unreachable, was not gone but wasnt on the “right schedule.” Those who know me know I quote movies and TV shows mostly for humorous situations. This time quoting Cheers (yes cheers) where Robin Colcurt was talking to Sam as Sam was about to buy another bar not cheers. He asked “is this what our really want…” To which Sam replied “I don’t want to buy that crappy bar… I want to buy this crappy bar…” – Its funny as you watch people as the light bulb goes off…. Goals are a wonderful thing, you need to have one and shoot for it, some days you take a step forward a step backwards, even a step sideways… But wake up the next day and try to take the step forward. Its something then I had to repeat to Ariel last night.. You can redo yesterday, but you make tomorrow one step closer..
Please note I wrote this in 2014, but never posted it, it stayed in draft. But thought I would release it as there really is nothing I need to add to it..
This opinion is mine, and mine only, my current or former employers have nothing to do with it. I do not write for any financial gain, I do not take advertising and any product company listed was not done for payment. But if you do like what I write you can donate to the charity I support (with my wife) Morgan Stanley’s Children’s Hospital or donate to your favorite charity. I pay to host my site out of my own pocket, my intention is to keep it free. I do read all feedback, I mostly wont post any of them
This Blog is a labor of love, and was originally going to be a book. With the advent of being able to publish yourself on the web I chose this path. I will write many of these and not worry too much about grammar or spelling (I will try to come back later and fix it) but focus on content. I apologize in advance for my ADD as often topics may flip. I hope one day to turn this into a book and or a podcast, but for now it will remain a blog.
