Late yesterday, a deal I was working on died. It wasn’t some career altering deal, but it was one that I have spent considerable time on. I was a little bummed about it, but I had done all I could do. It just failed.
My morning trek generally stars at Starbucks before I go to the office. Today I got there, and they must have been training a whole new team because cars were everywhere, and I almost just left and came straight to the office. I found a parking spot and was still thinking about that little deal as I walked into Starbucks. When I got close to the door, there was a car there with the logo of a Hospice care facility on the door.
When I saw that car and the logo on the side, I realized how insignificant money, jobs, titles and deals were. When you get to that point in the game of life where a Hospice is your next stage, all those other things just do not matter.
Perspective is a funny thing. It helps you place in order the important things in life. That was my little life lesson God showed me today. KT
