I’m finally back from co-organising the famous husky race in Aviemore. This year we had a waiting list for entrants and have many exciting plans for next year. Press day was fun and it’s nice to see so much footage on a news report. It was also a pleasure to share some of our annual pilgrimage with The Hodge, rumour has it he will return next year.
I woke this morning to a text message from a dear friend.
Have a fantastic 2009 darling and go nowhere other than where your dreams take you. You are special.
Taken from a kawasaki tweet link to an article in Psychology Today:
“People carry around a heavy burden of not feeling authentic,” he says, “because they have failed marriages and their work life hasn’t gone the way it should, and they’ve disappointed everybody, including themselves. When people think of these as just failures, as opposed to learning experiences, they don’t have to feel the weight of their lives or the choices they’ve made.”
In short, there’s no such thing as failure, only feedback.
Make 2009 your year of being real, being authentic.
