It's Not I Have To, It's I Get To

It’s not “I have to.”

It’s “I get to.”

That simple reframing has brought so much joy to my world.

It’s not I have to work for three hours. It is I get to spend three hours helping entrepreneurs rethink their lives and their businesses.

It’s not I have to travel 7 hours to work. It’s I get to travel across our beautiful country to deliver a keynote for BC Hockey. On my way, I can marvel at the convenience of air travel that brings us all closer and the beauty of flying over the Rockies during Sunset.

It’s not I have to go for a run. It’s I get to go for a run in the beautiful Okanagan Valley through the vineyards of Penticton.

We have about 4000 weeks to live.

Mark Twain once said “The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.”

Even if you haven’t found your why yet, you get to enjoy the pathway to that second day.

Thank you for allowing me to deliver two talks virtually Nancy Mathis. Your impact on the Entrepreneurial community in Atlantic Canada is second to none.

Thank you BC Hockey for bringing me to your stunning province.

I’m grateful for the experience.
