Scott’s Thoughts

Can you live in the middle?

When I find something I love…
I jump all the way in…

I’ve always been that way, since I was a kid.

While it does have a lot of advantages…
It has had me reflect on the “middle” more than once…

Can I have Pizza without the entire thing?
Can I work AND play?
Can I do something a little bit, without doing the whole thing?

I remember a good friend of mine was in the forest with me a few years
ago and I said…

“Ya know… sometimes I wish, I could just come here and not work”.

He said in his normal stoic response.

“Well, you can do that. Yet, if you did. You’d tell me how sometimes all
you want to do is work. Why not do both?”

It’s a wonderful reflection at the time.
And from time to time, it continues to come up for me.

Does every week have to be the same?
Every meal the same?
When I like something… do I need to ALWAYS do it?
Or can I live in the middle?

As time has gone on…
I’ve realized that the middle ground in life (and business) is almost
always the best route.

Sometimes we get something we like…
A pattern… a routine…

And we put the blinders on and just continue the journey…
Without realizing that by not living in the middle…
Or seeing the world through a middle-ground…

We’d have a lot more balance…
alignment…
and inside of our business a lot more harmony.

Right now… going into the last part of 21’…

Where do you wish to see the middle ground?
And further, where do you want to live?

“All in” may be heroic.

But…
Do you want to be happy… aligned… and in balance…

Or a hero?

I never met a hero
that was happy.
