I really wanted to travel to visit my daughter this past weekend. To get away, to escape you could say. But escape from what? Well, simply: self-doubt, struggles, worries.
At times, I’m my own worst enemy, a relentless and bullying critic of my performance as a husband and father and executive leader. Yes, I’m hard on myself, sometimes too hard. But, still, there have been things I’ve been putting off lately, things I needed to address to become a better me.
I hit the issues head-on this weekend rather than escape on a roadtrip. I’m glad I did. The weekend was just what I needed to get myself ready to hit the future, starting this week.
You can’t run or hide from the tough conversations. The tough conversations are the ones that need to happen sooner rather than later. Especially if those tough conversations are the ones you need to have with yourself.
