I just read a brilliant book that reminded me how the “What-If” game can either weigh you down or lift you up.

The New York Times best selling book The Midnight Library by Matt Haig is a fascinating read exploring one woman’s view of the choices she made and how it impacted her life during her moment of death.

I won’t say more to avoid spoilers, but I highly recommend it as a summer read.

If you have ever second guessed yourself, got stuck in the regret roulette, or wondered what would have happened if you made an alternative decision in your business or whole life, this thought provoking read is for you.

This is my favorite part because sadness, failure, or tragedy just isn’t talked about enough :
“There are patterns to life . . . Rhythms. It is so easy, while trapped in just the one life, to imagine that times of sadness or tragedy or failure or fear are a result of that particular existence. That it is a by-product of living a certain way, rather than simply living. I mean, it would have made things a lot easier if we understood there was no way of living that can immunise you against sadness. And that sadness is intrinsically part of the fabric of happiness. You can’t have one without the other. Of course, they come in different degrees and quantities. But there is no life where you can be in a state of sheer happiness for ever. And imagining there is just breeds more unhappiness in the life you’re in.”
Enjoy the read and let me know what you think if and when you read it.

…my fall 22 and 2023 calendars are filling up faster than previous years. Let me know soon if you are considering possible new work together so I can prioritize your requests!

Dedicated to growing your business,
