Are You Sitting On the Sidelines?
"It it better to be making the news than taking it; to be an actor rather than a critic."Winston Churchill
In case you're new to this space, I started my own entrepreneurial gig about six months ago (after about a year of planning) and I'm finally adjusting to a new reality. Getting going has taken longer than I hoped, but it's been more fun than I imagined. In fact, as I find my new Executive Coaching/Executive Producing/Executive Summer Fun Director groove, I'm discovering is it's MUCH more fun to do than to talk.
You probably won't retweet that last thought.
Maybe you don't move into slow-motion as the temperatures rise. Maybe you've never experienced summer doldrums. Perhaps you are currently setting your world on fire (in a good way!). Awesome!
Still, if you're like me, the gravitational pull of any given day is to stay with what's familiar; to lean into comfortable routines and only occasionally try something new.
I mean, it's so HOT -- wouldn't you rather be by the pool or sipping a tea (sangria?) under the umbrella? There's nothing unappealing about that scenario.
Jump in! The water is definitely warm!
