I was reading a little motivational book this morning, and I came across something worth sharing.
I heard a great story recently about a guy who decided to send flowers to the grand opening of a friend’s restaurant. At the grand opening, he decided to check out the flowers he’d sent. Much to his dismay, he discovered that he’d sent a white wreath that said, “May you rest in peace.” Of course, he panicked and stepped out to call his florist. The florist said, “Bob, I’m not worried about you because as we speak, there’s a guy being buried who got a dozen roses that said, “Good luck in your new location.”
It seems like we get these little curve balls thrown at us just about every day. For me, yesterday would have been a great example. We’ve been working on a big project. As we were finishing up, we picked up on a couple of errors that hadn’t been noticed previously.
So often, the little errors (and sometimes great big ones) are missed because we are so busy. To do things right, you have to take your time. Think it through. Have a Plan B.
We worked through our issues, and got the project done. When you stop and think about it, there are very few problems that can’t be resolved.
Life is too short to dwell on the problems. Your valuable time would be better spent working on the solution.
