It’s amazing the effect travel can have on you.
For those of you in my Facebook feed, you probably know I’ve been on an amazing journey over the last three weeks…Australia, Maui, and more. And, as I posted from there, we are just in AWE over the great things we saw. Especially the wonders of nature. For those who asked, I compared Australia to a Dr. Seuss book – I saw so many animals, plants, etc. that I bareIy even realized existed. It truly is the closest thing to a wonderland that I’ve seen…ever.
But that seeing isn’t easy. We calculated after our trip, and realized we had taken 14 plane trips in 21 days. 3 each way to get there and back. And the others hopping between sites that we HAD to take the time to see, to maximize our time.
And that’s my inspiration coming back. Too often in the past I’ve squandered some of my business trips – not taking advantage of the sights to see, too immersed in work every second of the way. Too busy to take advantage. Too often I’ve thought of business trips as SOLELY business – missing some opportunities along the way.
So, long story short…I’m in Louisville this morning on business. And now…I’m off to the Muhammed Ali Center before business gets started today (around noon.)
See you later.
