Thoughts to ponder

Occasionally we find something potentially useful to share with others, especially regarding integrity, transparency, and accountability in the field of services. Health care, elder care, child care, pet care, home maintenance, lawn care, property management. The common theme is that people do things for other people millions of times every day. And today more than ever, we need to share what we learn with each other.

 
     
Stop and smell the

Stop and smell the "roses"!

Jun 03 2014

All of us seem to have a busy life. For some, it is raising a family and all that that entails. For others, it may be doing well in school so they can begin their career. Still others have a demanding job, and perhaps some extra stress deciding if the path they are on is actually the right one. The list goes on... but from what I see, even those that retire are quite busy.

For entrepreneurs like myself, the days start early and end late, and we seem to have an unlimited list of "priorities".  It is exhilarating to us, as one after another new tasks are identified, challenges overcome, and objectives met, as we get closer to the goal. And yet an element of anxiousness or expectation often pervades the life of an entrepreneur. We have committed ourselves to a dream, afterall. (Gulp!) Despite our commitment, any thoughtful person has at least some questions as to the wisdom of their specific dream. Have we objectively analyzed the need that we believe will be addressed by our dream? Have we found the alternatives or competitors that may already exist? Can the dream be realized as a business model that can thrive? And, of course, "if we build it, will they come?". 

Entrepreneurs may have families, friends, and a need for personal time like everyone else. But these things can get pushed to the back burner on (too many) occasions, and others in our circle may be alienated. Family can be concerned if the risk will be worth it in the end... because typically only the entrepreneur fully comprehends the vision. Yet we march on, hopefully collecting a great team of collaborators, and eventually fulfilling all the potential of that dream. 

The picture at right represents everyone's busy life. For someone like me, it is symbolized to a great extent by my daily tools: desk, phone, notepad and pen, keyboard, trackball, monitor, and mobile device (with TaskAssure). The most important element for the message of this article is the bowl of fresh Plumerias (known also as Frangipani). They provide a visual and aromatic distraction from my busy life. I hope you remember to stop and smell the "roses" (or in my case, Plumerias) during your busy day!
