just think......

i could have stayed in iowa.
i wouldn't be forced to sell my home when i really didn't want to
i wouldn't be looking for work, clients and more business
i wouldn't have had to travel so much, spending time tired, jet-lagged and hungry
i wouldn't have had to feel the pressure and stress of rehearsing my message for a few hundred people
i wouldn't have to work so very hard to keep up with too many friends located all over the world
i wouldn't have had to listen to people facing huge problems, coaching them through difficult change
i wouldn't have had to sit at the computer for hours on end to turn in a manuscript on time
i wouldn't have to be ever distracted by the view of the lake, the birds, the flowers and the sky
and, i wouldn't be sitting here now with too many options and far too many decisions to make.

i'd be watching the game on TV
and my home would be paid for.
