Holes

As I write this post, I’m awaiting word from a neighbor who has the necessary equipment to dig some post holes.  I’ve got several fence posts that need to be replaced and the job will be one hundred times faster and easier if a front-end loader holescan dig up the old posts and create the holes for the new ones.  So it wasn’t a surprise when Seth Godin’s, Life is Full of Holes, showed up on my computer screen yesterday and the title peaked my interest.

My quick synopsis of his blog post is that everyone encounters holes in the road in the journey of life. When we do, we often ask “Is this the correct path?”  Seth suggests that instead, we ask, “Is this somewhere I’d like to go?”  I love his final sentence: “It’s significantly easier to cross a gap when you have momentum and direction.”

Have you hit a hole recently? What happened? What question did you ask? And, what did you do to get your momentum going again?

TODAY’S TIP: Check-in with your vision and dreams and do something today that creates momentum toward making them a reality.  Have a TREMENDOUS Tuesday!

The Almost Boat

My friend and mentor, Barbara Winter, who was spending an afternoon with her grandson on Thursday, posted a brilliant four sentence observation on Facebook.  I’m sharing it with you today because I think it’s something to consider.  And, I’m wondering how many of you who read this blog recognize yourself in Barbara’s last sentence.

“So I suggested to Zachy that we make something out of construction paper. I thought a boat would be a good idea. We gathered our materials and then the project fell apart when he decided it should be large enough to hold his entire family of 5. Been pondering how often adults do themselves in by thinking the doable is unworthy of their efforts.”

TODAY’S TIP:  Think of something doable that will bring joy into your life and that will move you closer to making your dreams a reality.  Then do it — today!  Have a superb Saturday!!
