Are we there yet?

Last weekend, my 3 year old daughter and I went on lots of fun excursions.  Farmer’s market, various playgrounds, Target….and she kept asking me, “Are we there yet?” And I would say, “We are here, soon we will be there!”  As I prepared for my week on Monday morning, I reflected on that conversation and realized how powerful it was.

Are we there yet?

Nope, we are here.

And look at all that is happening here!

We were with a client a week ago and they have been tasked with an incredibly exciting but complex task ahead of them.  A task that involves multiple “phases” or “there’s”.  The question, “How are we going to do this?” kept coming up.  It was a question with the end “there” in mind.  I thought about my conversation with my daughter and I wrote to our client and assured them they will get there.  And there is much fun and learning here, in this planning place they are in.

In the summertime especially, I find myself thinking about the weekend all week long. (Probably because I live in Minnesota and it’s a short window.) Even if we have nothing planned, I just love to be in my backyard playing with my daughter, or hanging with husband.  And I was reminded this week that everyday can actually be an extension of that experience if I am aware of being here.  It is Thursday and yes I will be working, but I get to see some really great people today and then this evening, I get to hang out with my daughter and my husband in my backyard.  Cool!

Are we there yet?

Nope we are here.

Let’s enjoy here!
