This is the first blog I’ve written since my cousin Matthew was killed flying a helicopter a few weeks ago.
He was just 39, and he had a wife and a 5-year-old son.
It made me realise…
We can expend way too much energy worrying about things that don’t matter.
And take for granted the things that do.
Sometimes life kicks you in the ass to remind you.
I’m in my office at the moment. This morning I’ve planned next week, had multiple meetings and worked on some strategic moves for my business.
I used to be all about winning at everything I was involved with.
Many ‘entrepreneurs’ I meet just want to be the ‘big ideas’ person. They’re not interested in the little stuff.
In life people always talk about getting ‘ahead of the curve.’
Something had to get out of the way for everything good that is in your life.
We worry about things that might not work out.
We are all a combination of our experiences of the past.
We don’t need to detach from our painful past.
The you today is different from the you a year ago.
Sometimes leadership is about creating a vision and bringing people along.
