Good days


There are tough days.

Bringing new things to meet the world – building teams, change of any kind – there are a lot of difficult days and weeks and months where the only thing you know for sure is it’s going to get harder before it gets less hard and there’s no chance of easy, not any time soon.

With luck, a following wind, and much effort and anguish, the good days start to come. Sometimes they gather in groups. Eventually, standing in the right place at the right time with the right people around you, the good days outnumber the bad ones.

That doesn’t mean it’s easy, just easier to see why it’s worth the effort.

When it happens … when the happy faces outnumber the stressed out ones … take a moment to notice.

Respect it.

Reflect on it.

Break bread over it.

Then get back to work.

Skippy strategy: Celebrate the good days.
