Managing Ebbs and Flows

Life moves in ever-expanding circles. Sometimes it moves incredibly fast, and sometimes it moves extremely slow. And though you would swear time has stopped completely, it is not.

We need to get used to the ebbs and flows of time. If we are smart, we learn to control those ebbs and flows by always having something to do when something else has slowed to a crawl. It is not hard to accomplish.

It isn’t easy to know exactly where you’re going to find an ebb or a flow. You can, though, always know where you are and what small tasks you can squeeze into 15-minutes while you’re waiting for a computer to reboot, a cleaning routine to complete, or the 10-minute delay in a zoom. Just have a list of those small minutia jobs you must do and usually would not have time to complete. While you are waiting for one significant thing, maybe you can kick a couple of those small things out and still be ready for your meeting.

A retired Air Force Master Sergeant, Mike used to lay in bed at night and worry about what would happen if his plant closed or found himself without a job. One day his plant closed. Rather than panic and hysteria (OK, maybe a little) Mike found himself carried away on the adventure of his life. Mike started with the best job he ever had working at Home Depot. He spent 8 years working with job seekers at a local workforce center, helping them to find employment. He then started his own company developing courses, writing books and urging others to follow their own paths into the future. Mike holds a Master of Arts in Adult Education and Training and a Bachelor of Business Management, earned through the University of Phoenix and an AAS degree in Electronics Systems Technology from the Community College of the Air Force. Mike is a member of the Delta Mu Delta Business Honor Society.
