Thoughts From the Coffee Table: Life is not all rainbows and unicorns. But it should be.
I’ll admit it. Life (and business) seems a bit precarious right now. In fact, 100% of my primary 2020 business revenue is gone. Magically vanished, rather than magically delicious.
I am not alone in this. I am not a unicorn of misfortune.
I have been working on diversification in my business, never wanting to rely solely on my ability to be physically on a stage to ensure my income. But I wasn’t moving fast enough. We can get lazy when times are flush.
I am not alone in this. I am not a unicorn of inaction.
When danger seems far off, it is easy to enjoy the moment. When danger is not only at your door, but has come in, sat down on the couch and demanded a sandwich, you realize it’s time to move.
Right now. Become a unicorn of action.
So I am choosing to use these days and weeks to finish what I started. To move with greater urgency. To think more creatively.
Sure, I have moments of doubt, and a few of fear. But mostly I just keep moving forward.
There are still rainbows to chase. There are still dreams to believe in. And there is still time to make up for that which is lost.
All you have to do is become a unicorn.
Of forward progression. Of passion. Of hard work. And of faith.
