You aren’t in charge of the weather
If you’ve ever woken up, looked out the window at unappealing weather, and immediately felt like the day was off to a lackluster start, well, congratulations, you are a person.
Most of us have been there, and yet, it’s worth considering how much power over our outlook and mindset that we give to things we cannot control, like the weather…or the Yankees.
Listen, I love sunny days as much as the next guy, but I also realize that I can’t conjure a single one on my own. And because I can’t choose the weather, I have to figure out how to work around it because I have important work to do, just like you.
In case you haven’t figured it out yet, this message isn’t about the weather. It’s about controlling the things you can control and making peace with the things you can’t.
Especially on rainy days…and when the Yankees lose.
(If you are a control enthusiast who is trying to figure out how to let go of the myriad circumstances outside your control, I’d love to chat with you about how I can help you waste less of your time, energy, and focus on things you cannot change.)
