Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity. – Seneca


How many times do we have a goal in mind but never achieve it? When most people hear this question they think of diet or financial goals. And yes, it applies to those and many more.


Holidays are a time for many to get inspired about setting new goals, visualizing dreams, having a fresh start. START is the keyword here.  You won’t achieve any goal if you don’t start. How could you finish a race if you never take that first step and the starting line? I have suffered from this many times in my life and admittedly still struggle.


New year, a new decade, new places, new things! Great mindset! But, how do I make it to the finish line? I have run races where I do not know the path I am supposed to run and so I rely on someone ahead. What if they are wrong? I would never make it to the finish line. Preparation and anticipation for those opportunities is an important part of finishing strong and achieving your goals.


Take the time to plan how to achieve those goals. Be ready. Once you know, just start! No procrastination. No excuses. Please know I am on this race right along with you. Getting ready, training, learning, drawing the map. Waiting for the opportunity but not sitting around. Making opportunities happen.


I was told recently to be like kids playing musical chairs.  During the game, the kids are focus on their goal which is getting to sit on a chair by the time the music stops. But as they wait, they continue to move in preparation for the opportunity.


Let’s finish strong by simply starting the race!

“Like me, I’m sure you have been touched by the videos of people applauding #healthworkers from their balconies, or the stories of people offering to do grocery shopping for older people in their community.

This amazing spirit of human solidarity must become even more infectious than the #coronavirus itself. Although we may have to be physically apart from each other for a while, we can come together in ways we never have before”- @drtedros #COVID19 
We’re all in this together. And we can only succeed together.

Es interesante ver cómo se reacciona ante emergencias. Quien recuerda donde estaba el 9 de septiembre de 2001 (9/11)? Anticipo que este  momento histórico que vivimos se impregnara en nuestros recuerdos marcando otro momento inolvidable en nuestras vidas. 
No era mi intención escribir un post relacionado a la situación que vivimos, pero ante tanta ansiedad y luego de recibir tantas preguntas de familia y amistades sentí que era importante compartir información básica en esta plataforma.

I am happy and excited to enter a new decade of life!  I want to freeze time.  I know that for many it may cause you pain, thoughts of regrets, frustration and maybe sadness. Not me. I do reflect on the past but have learned to appreciate the present and embrace the future with joy. That learning process has not been easy, but it is part of who I am today. 
Check out my recent post as I reflect on "freezing time"
