Balancing the lows with the highs

Life is about balancing the lows with the highs.
You can’t really experience pinnacle without the valley.

The football season illustrates this human condition so clearly.

One of the things that I love about national sports like this is the collective emotional journey we take together.

The only difference this time, for England, is the divergence of emotional focus for two distinct groups following our loss in the finals.

One of hate, anger and disappointment.
The other, of love, gratitude and pride.

How you deal with the lows show the depth of your character and maturity.

In projects like #Salesforce though, I prefer my emotional journey to be as flat as possible. 😬

For me, roller coaster projects mean stress and drama.
I prefer to anticipate, plan, and mitigate.

I’m not saying a bit of uphill and twisty turns isn’t exciting, but only if I’m expecting it 😁

When things look like it’s going downhill real fast, the option is to find a way to pull the yoke up, or brace for impact.

We’ve crashed out of the finals now.
(I’ve switched back to football.)

It’s time to be proud of how far we’ve come, and be grateful for the beautiful journey it’s been.

We are all part of the same human race.

Let’s celebrate that.
Lets celebrate Life. 🌹
