I have lots of great memories from summer’s past. My most recent is one that might surprise others. It involves the great storms of the summer. Sitting here in the basement and hearing the hail hit the house and running upstairs with my daughter to watch the rain and wind and hail as it flails around outside. We are safe inside, enjoying each other’s company, in awe of the wonders of nature. The hail as large as big marbles filling the driveway and yard, a pile of them building in the corner of the deck.
It’s a bummer that the hail has damaged the house, we now have holes in the siding again for the third time in about 4 years. I have mixed emotions as I think about the insurance companies who will now have to pay out many claims for damage and the companies who’s livelihood depends, in part, on storms like these for business. I don’t like having to go through the process of filing a claim and filling out the paperwork involved but it’s just a fact of life we have to deal with.
I think about how much this is like my business. I love having the opportunity to create and I love the process that involves. I don’t love all the paperwork required to make it all happen. All that left brain stuff that makes my head spin. But it’s necessary. I understand how important it is because, without it, great things cannot happen. My good friend, Rebecca Metz, has something coming soon that I can’t wait to share with you. Something that will inspire you beyond belief and will show you truly why all that stuff we don’t love to do is so important.
Today, take a step moving forward. Do something you don’t love to do and get it done OR, even better, find someone else to do it for you and outsource or delegate! Wishing you a life full of many successes (and just a little hail).
