I’ve found that mowing can often lead my mind to wander to interesting places.  I sometimes experience this when I’m driving and don’t have the radio on.  Today I had a bit of a revelation in the self-awareness department.

Something I stress about regularly is if I could be doing more.  Of course, the answer is always yes, but it’s hard to judge what’s reasonable looking out from the inside.  I want to be a good dad and a good consultant but it often feels like that’s all I can manage.  Do others manage to do both and still excel at a third thing?  A hobby, a side business, whatever.  I get ideas for things that could be interesting or “big” and I always get dismayed that I don’t have time/drive/energy to become an “expert” in any one of those things.  I know what’s most important in my life so this third thing ranks, well, third, but its still aggravating.

How do others make the transition from idea to action?  Do others just sacrifice one of the first two things to concentrate on the third?  Or is that just a flaw I need to get comfortable with…

I’m considering deleting this peek behind the curtain.  Not today…
