Lights are Off and No One is Home


The other day I was on my way home, and for some reason all the traffic lights were out. It was 5pm, so needless to say it was rush hour, and pure chaos.

I approached a 4 way stop, and found myself involved in a mess... On all 3 sides of me all I could see were blank stares, and darting eyes looking for the right time to make their move.

On one side of me was a good looking older woman, who had her hands on 10 and 2 and she was leaning forward as if by sure will she would get through the intersection.

Directly across from me was a business man talking on his cell phone looking way to stressed out to be on the road.

On the other side was a teenage kid dancing to his radio, not looking like he really cared whether he moved or not... So, I waited... and waited... and waited, for what felt like 30 seconds. After I gave it a little thought I pulled out into the road, and I became the most hated man in the intersection.

The man across from me hung up his cell phone and began to scream. The teenager on one side, honked his horn, turned off his radio, yelled something, and gave me a sign (which I think means I'm #1, but he was using his middle finger ??).The older gal to the other side just shook her head, and then leaned back forward.

Did I break any traffic laws or universal laws of courtesy?

No.

Did I give everyone ample time to do what we are all taught in driving school?

Yes.

So how does this story apply to you and your business?

Isn't it funny when you make a move and break out of the pack, you all of a sudden look like a one-eyed blue haired purple people eater?

When you decide to move out people are going to:

1. Be envious that you actually made your move.

2. Say their too busy to make their move

3. Have it in their mind that they wanna make their move, but don't take action.

And all three of them will be upset with you, because you ignored the excuses and made your move.

Well I had a dream. I was on my way home to my wife and two boys.I had calls to make, dinner to eat, and business was waiting to get done. I wasn't about to wait for other people to decide if their dreams were important enough for them to make a move.

We will encounter all these people in our lives, but it is important to remember that "this is your life, and these are your dreams. You and only you can make it happen"

To quote a good friend and business associate Stu Janoff " I'am willing to do today what others won't, so I can live tomorrow like others can't".

Make your move today!!Don't wait for others to decide for you.
