One of the great things about being an entrepreneur is the ability to create your own schedule. It is one of the reasons why I decided on self-employment after leaving the Federal goverment.
Last week, I was at a speaking engagement in San Diego and I broke my toes. You would think that wouldn't be too big of a deal but wow did it change what I could and couldn't do during an average day. And, it was the first time I had broken a bone in my llifetime.
Since I had speaking commitments, I waited about 10 hours to go to the emergency room. Oh, I knew something was wrong. Not only did they hurt but they were turning funny colors during the day!
After going for x-rays and to see the podiatrist, I needed to change quite a few appointments during the week which was a bit frustrating. Although I have considerable freedom and flexibility, I like to work. But, the only way to heal was to rest.
Sometimes because we enjoy what we do we keep going and going.
Today I'm sending you a reminder to slow down and enjoy the scenery. Do something good for yourself today. And, ride the Upside!
