just Be READY
I probably have the coolest job on the planet. I get to walk, and daily, with men whom change the world.
so, I am currently coaching a very storied executive whom is currently on retainer with an organization. he is frustrated because they pay him a fair amount of money each month, but won’t take action (at least not quickly) on some of the initiatives he is pressing for.
here is my latest message to him. he had sent me a text this morning thanking me for letting him “vent”. it’s something of a pep-talk. but, many of you may find in relevant to your own situation(s), today:
“We can also call it, “processing”.
You have a deeply rooted sense of integrity. So, you are some-what offended, but definitely frustrated, with the [COMPANY REDACTED] guy paying you but not fully leveraging your keen desire to be a valid change-agent. I find your mind-set admirable. Just don’t cut off your own nose to spite your face.
I meant what I said in closing yesterday. The [COMPANY REDACTED] guy values you. He may not know precisely what to do with you. But, he feels you are a good investment. Maybe having you near him inspires some level of confidence. Consider just taking that for what it’s worth.
I used to keep a Viper then a Shelby in my garage, “just in case”. One of my favorite memories is having a bad day and my knee was sore so I could not go for a run. I pulled the Viper out of the garage, headed for the mountains and just opened-that-bitch-up. I could do things in that car, or with that car, I could not with almost any other. Ear-to-ear grins. White-knucles. I felt great – and, it was all worth it. That moment still helps with situations such as this when I can relate it to you.
Yer a really good bloke, [CLIENT NAME REDACTED]. Just be ready.”
this may-or-may-not have anything to do with me being Racer X.
