Brian Buffini earns another “5 Wows”!
It’s Friday lunch break. There’s no signal here, so I won’t get to post this until I get back to Washington.
Getting away once in a while is important. Taking a vacation helps me to clear my mind and recharge my batteries. Two days at the Turning Point has cleared my mind and replaced my batteries!
And you kind of have to be here. There must be at least 1500 people attending this thing, and the energy level is really up there. It's a huge room, and the two giant screens on each side of the room make you feel like this guy is lookin right atcha!
Buffini is a mensch. He just lost a gorgeous house and its contents (including his cherished library) in the California fires. And he’s clearly having to deal with it. But while he lost a lot of things, his impish sense of humor is totally in tact.
An old mentor and coach used to say, “It’s not what happens to you, but how you react to what happens.”
Buffini is walking proof that this is absolutely right! He and his family have picked themselves up, shook themselves off, and reached into a vast reservoir of strong values. They clearly are going to get through losing their home as even better and stronger people than they already are.
This morning, he did a fabulous session of finances. Mine are sort of kind of fine, but like my database, a little chaotic.
So, as the lunch break is ending, I’m deciding about the coaching program. I got so much out o the two days. I’m here with a close colleague. Can we be each other’s accountability partners and keep up the momentum? Or do I need mere.
This is the scary day. This morning it was about finances, and this afternoon, we do time management. I’m feeling itchy just thinking about what I’ll need to fix in these areas.
I might have to blog a lot less – or maybe more efficiently!!
