Words of Encouragement

Sometimes our email is just full of junk. Well, most of the time. But sometimes there is actually a golden nugget in there. (FYI, all emails from Andra Watkin’s blog are golden nuggets.)

Christine ComafordThis morning as I was doing my bleary-eyed email sort, I came across one from industry great Christine Comaford. I have been a fan of hers since I heard her speak at a tech conference in San Fransico back around 1996. It was a good conference, a great trip, and she was a terrific speaker.

Anyway, this is part of the email I found in my mailbox this morning…

Are you in a position where you feel you’re surrounded by stumbling blocks? Hey, we all run into those from time to time. Nobody knows that better than me. But stumbling blocks are actually stepping stones. And once you change your perspective and see them in this way, you can use them to your advantage.

I don’t know why, but this is exactly what I needed to hear. Especially after I stayed up until about 12:30 last night finishing some writing – and still not being happy with the result. Today is another day and another shot, so pardon me while I step up on this stone…
