I saw a meme on Facebook the other day that said “100 days until Christmas.” Honestly, I am not looking forward to Christmas this year. The past two years have been just terrible for me and my family. In 2016, my father was dying of lung cancer. My mother-in-law recently had a stroke. And because of all of this, Christmas was at MY house. And to top it all off, my brother-in-law and his wife were coming up from Florida, so we had to entertain them for a few days. It was a rough Christmas.
In 2017 (the first Christmas without my dad), I volunteered to have Christmas at my house, again. It was not only sad, but my sister and her family were over an hour late (and dinner was ready), her youngest child screamed throughout the entire night, nobody was in a good mood, and I ended up with a monster headache. But, I had enough energy to take down every Christmas decoration that night before going to bed. By December 26th, Christmas was GONE. I vowed this year I would not put up any Christmas decorations. And my husband wants to go to Vegas. So, when I saw “100 days until Christmas” on my Facebook feed, I just about threw up.
Since owning my business for 6 years, and having worked with hundreds of business owners during that time, I’ve learned quite a bit.
Remember the game Sorry? Your plan is to move ahead with an end goal in mind, but things happen. Someone steps on you and pushes you out of the way (that’s just a few steps back, no big deal). But then someone else comes along and crushes your dreams and sends you right back to where you started. It sucks! But, it’s also just like business.
What do you do when faced with these obstacles? Do you fall apart and quit? Or do you plan new goals and keep moving forward?
This week I came across this TEDx Talk by Stephen Duneier. I was walking down my daily 2-mile path in my neighborhood and picked this particular discussion to listen to. Why? Because I am continuously trying to improve myself, one small adjustment at a time. Stephen’s entire talk was speaking to me.
See, I’m the type of person who is NEVER satisfied with my level of knowledge. I am always looking for ways to improve. I am consistently searching for different motivational techniques to keep me moving, for fresh new skills to learn, and for valuable content to study.
