We almost didn’t get off the ground…
Recently, I got to speak in person to an amazing group of women entrepreneurs in Colorado Springs. It felt soooooo good to be back in person.
It was a quick trip. Flew up to Denver on Tuesday and planned to fly home late Wednesday night.
When I got to the Denver airport Wednesday evening, it was raining with a winter weather advisory in place. We were scheduled to take off at 10:55pm, but the flight was delayed for some reason. Now, I am all about the airlines needing to do what they need to do to be safe. But, the plane was there, the people were there and, yet, we were not getting on board.
The weather was getting colder by the minute while the rain was falling harder. At the time we were scheduled to take off, it was raining. By the time they finally got us boarded and ready to go, we were in a full-fledged blizzard.
Consequently, we had to be de-iced, which took at least 30 minutes…all the while, the runways were filling up with snow.
Then, the runways had to be salted, which took even more time.
When it was finally time for us to go, we sat at the edge of the runway with the engines raring for what felt like an eternity. The snow was blasting down by this time. I sat there holding my breath wondering if we were going to get to take off after all.
We finally were able to take off and I was able to get home early Thursday morning.
I share all of this with you because it was such an illustration of what can happen when you hesitate.
It may seem like you are taking care of things and putting things in order.
But, hesitating has a way of compounding itself where it actually makes things more difficult while adding time rather than making the process more efficient.
Sometimes, you just need to go with what you have, doing what you can, realizing that you can figure it out on the way.
Again, I am not suggesting that we should have taken off if things were not safe. But, for most of us, we are not in a life and death situation.
It is just more about not feeling ready.
Here is the thing, you will never feel ready to make that bold decision and take that bold step. Sometimes you just have to leap and trust that you will be guided as you go.
It is the hesitation that can often create the chaos.
Where are you hesitating? What are you putting off until you feel more ready? Lean in. Take the leap. Take off before you get stuck in the process of getting ready. It is when you are in motion that you can be shown what your next steps are and the miracles can happen.
Here’s to taking off in the snow.
