“Options” is my favorite word.
I remember the moment I learned it. Second grade. Mrs. Blair’s class at Hollyrood Elementary. Mrs. Blair explained that after we were done with our test, we had the option of doing the white or pink activity sheet. To make sure we were all clear, she explained what option meant. It meant we had choices. Or more accurately, the power to choose.
At that moment, option became a magical word. It still is.
I share this story because I think we all could use to remember that we have options.
No matter how much your job sucks or your business is flailing or your clients are difficult, you have options.
No matter how much luck impacts your life, you have, you have options.
No matter how big your competitors are or how small your budgets are, you have options.
You have the power to choose. Exercise it.
