Digging in or digging out?! We haven’t seen snow like this since 1996. So pretty AND a lot of work.
Living in Montana I am still surprised by how much the weather affects us. The weather predictions are rarely right and change at the drop of a hat. We have absolutely no control over when or how or if the weather will be sunny or snowy, raining or just grey. And yet we figure it out, adjust as needed and get through our day.
In business I have experienced many things, a lot of which are just like the weather. They change at the drop of a hat, and I have no control over them.
As someone who likes to feel like I am in control it has taken me a bit to relax when it comes to all of this. You see I was a firm believer that if I just did x, y, and z then I would surely have 1, 2, and 3. For those of you who are chuckling right now, you understand there are no guarantees. For those of you who believe as I did, you are wondering what in the world I am talking about.
Here is what I have learned.
1,2, and 3 do come, whatever those are for you, as long as you are committed to them. Sometimes that means you are digging in and having to learn new things or do new things. Sometimes it means you are digging out and having to let go of things. The bottom line though, is when I am committed I simply recommit and keep going AS MANY TIMES AS IT TAKES. That is what guarantees I will get my 1, 2, and 3.
And guess what! That is what will guarantee you will get yours too.
I know we all want to hit the jackpot or swallow the lucky pill, those things do happen, just not very often. So here is to a year of commitment and recommitment and recommitment and …. as often as it takes!
May this year be one of amazing results for you!
