Maybe not so Dumb or Dumber. This morning we played tennis with some great friends who have relocated to the Colonnades on Hutchinson Island on a full time basis. My partner and I lost the first two sets badly. She kept telling me, we still have a chance, reciting the famous Dumb and Dumber quote! She is really delightful.
Whether it was prophetic, wishful thinking, or a conviction that against all odds, "There is still a chance!", we prevailed and won the third set with ease! Reading my latest book, Mega Creativity by Andrei Aleinikov, the author sets the stage that whatever doors seemed closed to us can be opened by creative thinking. In the tennis match, we prevailed because we decided that whatever we were doing was not working! Therefore, if we change, what is the downside? Duhh! There is no downside!
A lesson learned. If I look down the path of my life and I do not like the ending that I see? Change! If I like the ending that I see, as Mega Creativity suggests, open new pages. Do more than you are required to do! Explore ways that will let the "genius" in you escape. Obviously, I am excited about this book. I am excited because the status quo does not have to pigeon hole me into being what the status quo dictates. I am free to think. I am free to explore. I am free to risk everything if I choose.
If this is the first time that you have read our blog, my wife, Pam, and I come from forty years of entreprenurial history. We have been involved in many start up enterprises. Everything from Maine Wild Blueberries, to insect repellents, to predator urines, to grilling woods. After we sold our last business, we decided to relocate to our beloved Hutchinson Island, Florida. Hutchinson Island is one of Florida's best kept secrets. Most of Florida is busy, congested, and over priced. Hutchinson Island is none of the above! Here are still great values in real estate as well as the laid back way of life that you demand. Check out our website. And if you have any questions, Pam and I are eager to explore Hutchinson Island.
