After Monday morning’s hatching of a strategy to help one of our offices move the dial quickly I could feel the nervous energy and anticipation coursing through my veins. As the time for action neared I kept getting more and more excited – I was so pumped up!!!
After all was said and done I was very happy with the results and upcoming follow up actions. For a short time on the long drive home I caught myself thinking about what was next…
As luck would have it the run Becky and I have been training for is tomorrow! Tonight I’m bouncing through the house getting ready, making sure I have everything I need, and going through the plan for the run in my head. I’m not sure how I’m going to fall asleep tonight with the nervous energy pumping through me.
When I pause and think about the nervous energy and anticipation I’m reminded of the beauty of purpose and challenge. While chasing a dream with obstacles that could result in failure the nervous energy helps me stay in the present and savor every moment of the excitement. I’m probably going to be staring at the ceiling for a while tonight, but it’ll be with a smile on my face.
