It’s your ship to sink or sail

It has been incredibly interesting to be in charge of everything.

As CEO of your own small business, you can do anything you want.

This is a blessing and a curse.

You might sink your ship. You might discover new shores.

Bottomline, it humbles you in learning why so many people do, or don’t do, the things they do.

Survival.

And if you manage to survive, greed comes a calling asking you to cut corners, take short cuts, exaggerate.

But then you remember the brand you are building – and none of those are even remotely acceptable.

Things have become so much clearer in the past 15 years

If you honor your body and take care of it well, you know this.

If you’ve become more concerned with your work as art versus status, you know this.

If you’ve come to gripes with your mortality in an inspiring way, enabling you to live each day with conscious purpose, you know this.

If you know that it truly is in the giving that we receive, you know this.

It’s a vicious circle isn’t it?

distractions lead to a multitude of unplanned results, some bad (like here), some good (like below)

It’s a vicious circle isn’t it? You love what you do because you’re good at it – which makes you love what you do – which makes you good at it – which makes you….

The gifts we receive from life seem to be disguised and unheralded. Do something everyday for years and you will probably not be the best in the world, but you will most likely have developed a world-class habit of focus and discipline.

These unsolicited gifts seem disproportionately better than our original goal.

This leads us to thinking seriously, or ignoring completely, New Year’s resolutions. The amazing paradox of effort in tackling our biggest demons is that effort and reward are almost always directly proportional.

Work life balance involves our holistic commitment to five simple themes and it’s surprising how few of us have the guts and determination to focus on this correlation by clicking through to the Next Blog (our “physical health” blog)
