I love being free.
I had lunch today with a friend and former coworker who is still in Corporate America. Corporate America is still much the same as when I left.
Whenever I talk work with friends and family still doing the corporate thing, I feel like …
Praise God I’m not there anymore.
And not today so much, but sometimes the stories make me think … well, I look at people stressed out and so wrapped up in corporate shenanigans … and I’m reminded that I was there once, in that exact place in my life. I didn’t realize how easy the choice really was to do something different.
Does it take some risk and stepping out on faith? Sure. So do a lot of things worth having in this life.
I guess I’ve taken on some of the traits of one of my sounding boards who – usually when I’m rambling while looking for an answer to something or another – gives me The Look … which says, in so many words, “Really?” … “Did you hear what you just said?” … “Stop thinking so much.” … “It will all work out, it always does.” … “You know what you should do, so go do it.”
Sometimes I just need to be told. Don’t we all.
Today was good. Reinforcement that I’m on the right path.
We all have a lot more choices than we think. Some get that and some don’t. And some just like to complain. Or so it seems. I prefer positive attention over negative attention and sympathy, though.
Interestingly, I read an article this week that says entrepreneurs tend to be healthier than non-entrepreneurs. Amen.
Stepping away and having some perspective rocks.
