This Week’s Focus Point: Unturned Stones
Last week, Kobe Bryant played his last game for the Los Angeles Lakers. He ended his 20-year Hall of Fame career in grand style, scoring 60 points to lead the Lakers to a comeback win. I guess if you’re going to write a script on how to go out in style, that would be it!
I’m guessing you’re smart enough to know that answer without being given examples. We have stones labeled opportunity, talent, desire, education, experience, resilience, boldness, and fun scattered before us daily. They aren’t always overturned becasue there might be some obstacle in the way. Obstacles include fear, apathy, and simply not being in the moment enough that you walk over the stone without noticing it.
An NBA career is relatively short compared to our expected lifespan. While a business career may be longer in duration, it also goes by amazingly fast. Before you know it, you could be peering back at a trail of undisturbed stones in your path wondering what lay beneath them. Here’s hoping you can confidently proclaim – just like Kobe Bryant did – that you left no stone unturned.
Quote of the Week:
“I’m 75 years old yet I feel like a 19 year old that’s wondering ‘What happened’?”
~ My dad, Don Weedin. I’ve never forgotten these words when contemplating the passage of time. As I get older, they stick with me even more…
