Ride The Wild Wind

Spun around by the chaos of the every day, we can lose that sense of direction from time to time. That’s okay. Enjoy it.

Waitaminute! Enjoy it? Really?


The character that shines through when you hold your head up and smile at the craziness all around will relax you and those near you to an extent. It can also give you a clearer picture of what is happening so you can do what needs to be done.

When you are really not sure of what is going on or where it may lead, trust your gut. Do what feels right.

Too often we can overanalyze the moment, listing off the various things that may happen, good or bad. On occasion, the louder voice beats down the one that should be heard or followed. These are the times when you need to improvise. Improvise in the sense that you have your experience and faith in your ability to tap into and do what needs to go down.

Let me tell ya, it ain’t easy, but it can be done! The way you do it is you get out of the way and let things unfold and what you do will come naturally, and you will relish in it.

I have worked in a couple of industries that gave me that “deadline rush.” That sense of just making it in the nick of time, pushed up to the last moment, can take it out of you but leave you energized as well.

When you are focused on the task, you and the moment are one. You flow through the tasks to reach the final goal.

When have you trusted your gut and did what felt right?
