Cliches are cliches for a good reason. They accurately reflect reality! They’re also – at times anyway – really, really good for business. I’ve just returned from a quick sojourn with a group of family and friends. Five days of R&R in San Francisco and the Napa Valley.
This stop and smell the roses thing is for real!
Early in the trip, while staring back at the City By The Bay over the iconic bridge, I had one of those “ah-ha” moments. Yes, the hours have been longer and the work harder than ever these past few years. (I’m tired!) But longer, harder or more challenging than those worked by the masses who passed through this strait?
I don’t think so… And even beyond that, have the rewards of the effort been any less? Nope.
So on this first day back, the juices are all flowing full speed yet again. My business point? Nothing you haven’t heard before. Nothing you haven’t experienced yourself. Just a reminder… Do stop and smell the roses now and again. It’s good for the soul and it’s good for business.
