I was sitting on my balcony in Florida Sunday afternoon, thinking too much about life and career and how the heck I got to where I am despite some really turbulent times in life and career. And then these storm clouds rolled in. Some serious and ominous stuff.
I remembered what my son said to me in 2001 when he was just shy of 7 years old and were on Day-1 of vacation when there were massive storms at our vacation spot in Avalon, NJ: “Dad, there’s always great weather after a storm.”
There were many times in my life and career when I thought the storms would last forever and, just like that, the rain stopped, the wind subsided and the clouds lifted…ushering in a tremendous stretch of calm and peaceful weather.
