When To Let It Be and When to Course Correct
I’m over here at my Dad’s still this week. I’ll be here for a total of 11 days. I love the time with him, but his internet is the WORST. I’m actually using my phone as a hot spot to write this post because the internet is so unstable.
I’m all for taking time to unplug and the Universe has funny ways of giving us what we need, but this is getting a little nuts.
His internet has never been great, but we aren’t usually here this long and we often stay at a VRBO nearby, so it’s never been a big deal.
Whenever the topic of his internet comes up he says ‘that’s all that’s available here’. Which I knew could not be true, but I just let it ride. It’s his house, if he’s not worried about it I won’t, etc. But on day 6 his problem became my problem and it was time for a change.
So we called the neighbors and found out who their internet provider is and are getting it switched over.
It got me thinking about the scenarios in our lives that hold us back and slow our progress that we just accept as ‘that’s just the way it is’ without ever really putting effort into finding other solutions.
And sometimes there are really easy solutions out there – like call the neighbor to find out who their internet is.
And so that is my encouragement to you. Get clear on what your ‘internet factor’ is. That thing that just is. That you tolerate. That you assume you can’t change.
Then talk to people about it. Not in a whinny complaining way. In a – hey I’m struggling with X, how have you handled it? Sometimes the solutions are easier than we realize.
Feel like your business plan, or lack there of is holding you back? Join Diane Terry and I on December 12th for Energy + Systems = Business Planning Success!
To your success!

I’m over at my Dad’s in Sandpoint, Idaho this weekend. For a variety of reasons I headed over early yesterday, like 5:45am early. I love the drive East, the beauty of the mountains, the way my shoulders relax when I hit the wide open spaces of Eastern Washington, all of it. Yesterday I drove into…Read More

When I was younger, I was laser focused on my goals. You couldn’t knock me off track if you tried. And then something changed. Looking back, I could ‘blame’ it on getting married and starting a family, saying they pulled my focus. But I KNOW that isn’t entirely true. I love Gary and my boys…Read More
