Thank You, and other things

September 8, 2011

It’s been one of those weeks, you know? It’s shorter than usual and busy busy busy.

Fall is always crazy for our Vemma business. People are getting back into the swing of things after kids go back to school, and added on top are several new initiatives from the corporate side of things that have everyone abuzz. Growth is happening.

It is busy. It is gooood. It is busy gooood.

We’re also working on investment property numero dos, which is exciting.

Hubz is down to the final weeks of marathon training, which is exciting.

The canine is loving the cooler weather and is demanding an extra 20 minutes per day of walk time be added to her contract. Her parents are considering a strike.

Before I share the tiny tidbit I want to share, a quick thank you is in order. The Q & A post on quitting my job has received more emails and Twitter messages than any other post I’ve ever written. Thank you for that. Thank you so, so much.

It took me a long time to compile that piece and, while doing so, I doubted whether anyone would find it helpful. You reassured me that you did, and I’m excited and honored that at least a handful of people out there find something worthwhile in my experience.

Anyway, here’s what I wanted to share: I received an email from a friend the other day that listed 12 “Principles for Personal Growth.” Among them was this quote:

“You well never do anything well until you do it many times poorly.”

A strong reminder that it only gets better from here. That we should congratulate ourselves for taking imperfect action far more often than we criticize ourselves for stalling while waiting for perfection. We just have to give it a try. Just…go for it!

Not being perfect is ok. I appreciated the reminder, and thought you might too.

Updates to come soon on the 9/11 anniversary, status of the rental property, and the canine’s new parents!

Ok, I’m just kidding on that last one.

Sort of.
