We’ve just moved into a new home. Over the years I’ve heard many people share their frustrations of moving house. Where did this come from? When did we get this? Why do we have this? How did we end up with so much stuff? Do we really need this? I thought I’d need this that’s why I haven’t got rid of it. Ah! This is where this was. It’s funny what you find when you’re not looking for it. Can you identify? Thoughts… the thing about moving house…
You don’t want to pay ‘too much’. ‘Unreasonable price’ is a subjective. This is why we can be on the hunt for cheap. We sometimes use synonymous or words similar. ‘Cost effective’ is one of the terms used instead, sometimes. Our search for bargains, however we interpret that, can put us in danger of cheap deceit.
I just got back to the office from the ‘holidays’. I knew there were a lot of important and urgent things awaiting. I successfully resisted the urge to work and tried to focus on building a reserve of strength I’d need when I got back.
As I imagined things are as I had imagined. At the start of the year and I’ve already used, “hectic” as a response and punctuation. Time and excellence are of the essence!
I might be so bad with blind spots that my blind spots have their own blind spots. Whether we admit it, we all have blind spots. Some are character flaws. Others are a product of our circumstance and focus.
Focus intentionally and unintentionally creates blind spots. As we chase dreams and the mission, we have to choose what becomes important. We choose to be blind to some things.
I’ve said it before, the truth is a beautiful thing. Nothing taints truth like delivering it with malice and egotistical motives. In both life and leadership we tend to place a high value on it, if it is on our side. I don’t know anyone who loves being ‘wrong’.
