What Can Go Wrong…

September 14, 2010

This morning has involved a series of events preventing me from getting to my morning meeting on time. You know those days – you spill coffee on your white shirt, smash a glass bottle on the floor as you attempt to empty the overfull recycling bin, forget your key to the office at home, you name it!

This is the time where I need to take my own advice I’ve given clients a million times. STOP! And do nothing. The best line and visual I’ve seen thus far is Denis Healey’s “When you’re in a hole, stop digging.”

So after five deep yoga breaths I begin anew. Nothing in the world is going to make me be on time for my morning meeting. But at least I’m no longer running to stand still.
