Running at the Pace of Life


I just finished my long run, usually 10-12 miles, on a beautiful cool Fall morning in Nashville. And as I finished feeling great I said, “I’m a much better runner during my Fall runs because of the miserable sticky summer runs.” But as I considered the implications, I realized that’s not only applicable to my run, but also to the rest of my life.

I can move faster in my business,  and in my relationships because of enduring and getting past troublesome spots, much like an endless run on a hot and humid southern morning. I can enjoy seasons of growth and harvest because of the lessons conditioning I learned through the rough days of just “plowing through” in life.

In your business or personal life, what season are you in? How are you dealing with it?

    Maurilio, I’m in a difficult season right now on my personal life. I’m going through a divorce and I’m not sure where I’ll land.

    Thanks for the reminder that a better season is up ahead.

  • Jason Krammer

    I'm going through a very tough season in my personal life. Thanks for the encouragement. I know I'll be stronger for it someday.

    • Thank you for your honest feedback, Jason. Stay the course.

  • Just made it through a miserable sticky summer run. I'm thankful for the change in seasons, yet also grateful for the endurance and other rewards that I gained through the rough stretch. Recognizing the seasons and understanding that they do change sure makes it easier to persist. I'll be ready for when the summer comes around again!

    • Endurance only happens when you push through the comfort zone. Thanks for the thought!
