Lessons I Learned This Week

Updated: Oct 8, 2019



It is an ideal morning to write; the air is crisp with a light breeze and gentle rain. The coffee is perfect, and for the moment, all is well.


I will admit this has been a week of extreme highs and some pretty deep lows. I had two large victories and more than two losses. Still, I am here, I moved forward, and I am alive to fight another day. Here are a few things I learned this week.


1. Feeling that you are alone is a myth. Almost every person has experienced what you are going through or has thought what you are currently thinking.


2. Everyone has limitations, limited resources, limited skills, limited time. Find a work around for those limitations.


3. Comparing yourself to others is Kryptonite.


4. A key metric when measuring our progress is doing it, afraid.


“Don’t fear failure so much that you refuse to try new things. The saddest summary of a life contains three descriptions: could have, might have, and should have.” — Louis E. Boone

“If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself, but to your estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment.” — Marcus Aurelius
