Why The Summer Is A Great Time To Be A Failure.
Summertime can bring a slow down to our lives. It's a time when a daytime frisbee game calls to us more than the paper on our desks. Our task list gets longer as we throw water balloons on our hot concrete driveways. The e-mails that need our response sit unattended as we play ball in the park with our kids. The summer light hits the landscape just right, and we forget all about the meetings, obligations and need to keep doing.
This pause in our commitments could be called a summer slowdown, and it can feel like we aren't moving forward, taking care of business and downright failing at making success happen.
However, when we force ourselves to slow down, do we start to create a sense of what is truly important to us?
I'm going to continue to say "Oh Hey!" to the summer slowdown and see where my summertime failure takes me.
How about you?
Soak up the summer rays, stare at the sunflowers and I'll see you soon friends.
