|This was not at the conference but you get the idea!|
Staying at the conference hotel is also a bit of a shock. Hotel bathrooms seem to have more mirrors than any other surface. So after the daily shower, I was confronted with myself, warts and all, from all possible angles. Now I don't know about you, but having that kind of perspective of myself is quite uncomfortable. My vision is drawn to my defects or PERCEIVED defects and things that I don't like about myself. The conference was the same for my business.
It was too easy to see and hear what others were doing and think, "I'm not doing that. I should be doing what they are doing. There is something else I am not doing right. Look at all the stuff I haven't done or achieved."
From personal experience, that is not healthy and it gets you nowhere.
After a detailed discussion with my business partner, we have drawn a line in the sand (a sentiment reinforced by one of the speakers) and will only look to the future, acknowledge the past and act in the present. So there are a few bits about my body and my business that I am not a fan of. Rather than sitting on my pity pot and thinking about them, it is time for action and change. I can accept where I am at, warts and all. Now it is time for the action to meet the goals and the focus.
What about you? What changes do you want? What action will you take?
