I found a quote by Wayne Dyer that we've all heard, but it just hit me this morning...
"When you dance, your purpose is not to get to a certain place on the floor. It's to enjoy each step along the way."
We're all part of an amazing industry, but no business is without it's share of challenges. David Esquire shared one of his personal favorites in a blog post the other day. You've heard me constantly hit on a long list of pet peeves over the years, along with dozens of industry icons, but there's a common denominator between all of us.
Everyone is trying to raise the bar on quality in imaging, marketing, business, customer service etc. And, that's the part of the ride you just need to kick back and enjoy. Instead of being frustrated over everything you don't know and worrying about all the things you need to do to either build your business or just keep it going, take the time to just appreciate the steps you've taken that got you here today!
Stop and smell the roses!
