After two years, i’m better suited for the ups and downs

International speaking cities
Yesterday’s client call to South America. Two airports for two possible engagements in one trip. The names are two airports i’d potentially be flying to.

 

After two years, i’m better suited for the ups and downs.

The peaks and valleys of starting a business can drive you crazy.

Wondering where the next paycheck is coming from.

And conversely, wondering what you did in your life to deserve so much reward.

It runs as extreme as love and hate, day and night, hot and cold.

Yesterday’s call to Columbia has me hopeful, but not placing any stock in the outcome.

The website’s “first draft” is tonight

Colorado Attorney tagline
Denver airport Legal Firm advertising, a few days ago. i’m confident my team has done something wonderful. i asked for: simple, corporate, different.

 

The website’s “first draft” is tonight.

There’s no text book or business best seller that prepares you for the reality of building something you believe the world will welcome with open arms.

Feeling like a six-year old on Christmas eve.

And yet wondering if Santa will be able to come through with what was on the list.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

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.

Mid Life Crisis Is When...

Taught early on to play it safe, unfortunately this lasts a lifetime

Taught early on (rightfully so) to play it safe. Unfortunately this lasts a lifetime for many.

 

Midlife is for taking risks.

If no one ever took risks, Michelangelo would have painted on the Sistine floor.  – Neil Simon

Funny, right?

When it’s someone else denying their potential, but what about when’s it’s us?

PS. Correction: Our entire life is for taking risks, and midlife becomes our last great chance to get back on track.

Sometimes Yes, Sometimes No

Are you thinking about the calculated risk(s) you want, or need, to take today?

Or have you given up on risks?

Thrive on risks?

Remember the Michelangelo post a few days ago? It would have been so much easier, and quicker, for him to paint the Sistine floor.
