For the first time in well over a year, I was back at my favorite “not home, not office” spot, meeting an old client for coffee.

Interesting how something that I would hardly have noticed pre-pandemic, gave me such a thrill.

It reminded me, too, that when you run a business, and are constantly chasing the next client, more money, the new idea, etc., that you can get caught in the trap of thinking that tomorrow, you will finally get to where you’re going.

Today, I am remembering that when you work for yourself, you’re already there.
