After more than eight months of searching for a home, we finally found it. Offers, negotiations and mortgage approvals = fun times. But the lesson learned was a valuable one: Always focus on the big picture. Somewhere along the road I lost sight of it. That will never happen again.
I often ride the line between being risk tolerant and risk averse. Being self employed does that to you. Regardless, sometimes you have to lay it on the line and think big. And today I did just that. I stopped thinking about tomorrow, or this summer, and thought five, ten and thirty years out. Not just what my family needs, or wants, but how we’re going to get there.
I encourage you to do the same. Think about the big picture and don’t be afraid to put yourself out there. Great things can happen.
