I love to run.
For what ever reason I like running even more when it is raining or snowing. Â Call it crazy but I love it. Â We are so padded in our daily lives that rarely is there ever a chance to experience anything real unless, of course, you don’t pay your taxes.
So I’m about mid-run, getting warmed up so much that the snow flakes are actually refreshing as they melt on my face, when I start up a hill. Â It’s a pretty steep hill and it’s hard enough to tackle when conditions are “normal”, however, the wet snow makes it more interesting than usual.
I tried following some tire tracks, thinking that I might have more luck, but I had much more traction when I made my own tracks. Â Just has I was making the transistion from following the tire tracks, to creating my own, I watched as anÂ analogyÂ visualized before me. Â It made so much sense!
“You get more traction when you create your own tracks”
Now this might not make sense to everyone but as an entrepreneurÂ I work very hard to what I believe will be a successful business. Â Instead of working to make some one else prosperous I’d like for the hard,Â caffeine-filled, hours to go to my ownÂ future. Â When I was running in those tire tracks it reminded me of “going through the motions” and not getting anywhere fast. Â However, when I starting creating my own tracks I could feel the resistance of fresh snow and feeling that I could move forward withÂ decisivenessÂ and tenacity.
Or… maybe just had too much coffee and wasÂ hallucinatingÂ on cold, oxygen-rich air.
