The Sky's Falling

Hurricane Dennis is approaching and its packing a butt load of trouble. Power will probably be out for a while and we won't be able to provide our services for a few days, maybe weeks! Ivan taught us that anything is possible. We've taken all of the preventive measures and we're ready for the blackout and destruction. We just pray that our actions seem useless a few days from now. Time will tell....

In the meantime, this stupid storm has caused me to lose my focus. My game was off today. I guess a Nobel Peace prize winner even has his moments, but I was ashamed of myself today. I made excuses, I argued with clients, and I made mistakes. I'm embarrassed and I wish that I could take it back. I felt sorry for myself for most of the day until I realized that I wasn't the only one that was afraid of this storm. Unfortunately, I didn't realize this until too late. Lessons are sometimes hard to learn.

Emotion is a bad thing in business. I gets you in trouble whether you're in a good mood or a bad mood. I thought that I knew this until my actions proved otherwise today. A level head and a humble attitude is a necessity for your business' long-term health.

I apologize to my awesome employees. Today was a tough day, yet we only had one absence among thirty-seven employees. Our employees shined today, while I glimmered in the distance.

Today was a lesson. I learned that you must stand high no matter what the circumstances present. If I call myself a leader, then I better be a leader.

Due to Dennis the Menace, my blog may be slow for a while. Don't fret, I'll be back. (Emotion-free, of course)
