“We are all faced with a series of great opportunities – brilliantly disguised as insolvable problems.”
-John Gardner

Ninjas, Roombas, and our dog, Charlie, have very different styles of dealing with obstacles.

The Ninja persists forward, unrelenting. The Roomba pauses, re-calculates, and finds a different route. And Charlie lays down and waits for someone to carry him or finds something else to do, entirely.

I tend to be more like Charlie.

Where the Ninja finds an opportunity, I find an excuse; while the Roomba re-calculates, I retreat.

Determination doesn’t believe in barriers and doesn’t have time for minesweepers; it knows that sometimes things are gonna blow-up and there will be barriers to overcome. There is always a reason not to and some of us look for this first. There is a vast difference between cautious and cowardice, but they dress alike and hang out at the same bars.

Before I halt the dreams I have today because of a barrier I face tomorrow, I need to make sure that it is really road-block and not just an opportunity refine my purpose.

I need not be so quick to lay down and wait for someone to pick me up. Ninjas don’t do things this way, and Roombas simply re-calculate and try a different route.

Peace, Love, and all things Beef related,
