I’ll tell you what, it’s amazing how much genuine human interaction can fuel the soul. It’s been a long time since I went out across the country to see some of my clients. Of course, Covid really changed things up but still, I’ve had plenty of opportunities to go see my clients & prospects for that matter.
This past week was a blast. I went to a state I’d never explored and met some current clients and a new future client. I was refreshed. I love seeing these business owners and managers get better. I was reminded of my purpose. It’s nice to be wanted and valued. It’s nice to sit in a room with a group of people ready to ask questions because I have the experience. I put in a lot of time and effort, and I really sacrifice to be able to be a resource for others. Good trip all around.
Over the weekend I spent time with family and friends back home. A few lessons learned:
- Helping my father get his dream car was way more impactful mentally than I anticipated.
- Life moves fast. It’s really hard for me to do this, but it’s great to slow down and smell the roses.
- Give people the benefit of the doubt until you shouldn’t. It’s better that way.
- Phone down. Put that damn thing away for a while. People will figure their shit out.
I start another long week on the road today and I have to say I’m looking forward to being back in my own bed on Sunday. This weekend I get to go and be with some really successful people that have made a large impact on this world. I’m going to sit back and listen. I’m going to absorb it.
I’m excited to share my learnings with you next week.
