I have a fairly active business-fantasy life. One of my favorite fantasies is that I stay at peak levels of energy, productivity, and service without ever bottoming out.
Needless to say, I never actually maintain those levels of peak performance indefinitely. That's why they call it "a fantasy".
When I do drop the ball, I get to remind myself that:
- it happens to the best of us
- it's inevitable
- how I pick the ball back up is more important than having dropped it in the first place
- it's yet another opportunity to learn and grow (yippee)
As you might guess, I did a ball drop recently which prompted this observation. Thank you for being part of my growth process.
