A few months ago I made a promise to my 2 sons and my 80 year ‘young’ Mother: To take my sons to visit their Grandmother in January 2009. The original plan was to drive 2300km each way, as I do every year, or to take the train. As I have been sidetracked a fraction with my upcoming “Smart online profit systems” events, I managed to forget about this.
Family First – I’m Going Outback
I offered to fly my Mum across to see us at my home but it didn’t work out. So today, I decided to book flight tickets and hire a car for the trip. Tomorrow morning, I get up at 2am, drive to Perth and catch the plane at 6am to Adelaide with my 2 sons. Then we drive about 7 hours to get to my Mums house.
I’ll bring my laptop and my phone and I can still prepare for my upcoming internet marketing events. Meanwhile my boys get to see their Grandmother again.
What Really Matters
Why am I telling you this? Simple! In life, it’s easy to get sidetracked by all the noise. We forget what really matters most to us in life. I am following my heart. That is what matters to me: My family. When my boys are older, they wont remember why we canceled a trip to see their Grandmother, they will only remember that it got canceled.
Result: We are going. I wont let them down. My lovely wife, Cherie, is holding the fort at home and running the internet marketing business. Once again, she saves the day for me.
When you look at things, it becomes apparent that there is always a solution to every ‘problem’. No matter how big or small it is. Now, I’m booked to go on the plane, I realise that it will be a much better place for me to prepare for the upcoming workshops. I can go fishing with my Brother and my 2 sons. Spending time with my Mum will also be good for me and I will have plenty of time and clarity to be creative. Speaking to 200+ people requires a lot of preparation and information. So, it seems that a trip to South Australia is just the tonic for me. It will even prepare a better event for the people attending.
This would have to be the fastest blogpost I’ve written in history! I’m off to bed for some rest. See you all soon.
Have a most outstanding day
