Tucson at sunrise this morning.
Where can you find the magic at work today?
I attended a mastermind business retreat in Tucson last week. My flight home was scheduled for yesterday. Of course all flights were cancelled because of the Blizzard that slammed the Northeastern United States this weekend. The first flight I could get home is tomorrow. I had planned to spend all day Monday and Tuesday writing a proposal for one client who needed it by close of business Tuesday, and writing a very involved report for another client who I need to get to on Wednesday. In addition, this is one of the first trips where I decided not to bring my laptop as often I use it little at jammed-packed meetings like this. I figured can answer emails on my phone. Breathe.
I have been working with myself a lot lately in finding the positive versus dwelling on negative. The weather here is gorgeous. And I met a fellow attendee who lives near me and could not get home either. She generously loaned me her laptop. I had a friend go on my home computer and send me some documents I needed…and I was able to work and be productive. Amazing how things can work out in ways we never thought possible.
I even got a rest in the hot tub and a hike in. In addition, I spent most of the day with two women I met furthering our mastermind work and having amazing connections. Thank you my friends – Dan, Jeanne and Karen!
Now, to get up at 3:30 am for a flight home to the snow. Yay!
This week’s reflection question: How can you embrace the unexpected? Where can you appreciate the gifts?
