This is one of those classic weeks in which I feel like life is a bear and I have on porkchop pants. Lots of seminars to do, some tough audiences, an important and stressful personal commitment next weekend; it’ll be like game day every day except tomorrow, Election Day, until next week.
Months ago when I was scheduling this fall I purposely kept Election Day open. Not many people want to do seminars on Election Day anyway, but I wanted to be able to try and relax and pay attention to the election results.
I voted last Thursday and got lucky; minimal waiting and out the door.
No matter who you are voting for, you should vote. I keep thinking about the millions of people around the world who would give anything—up to and including their lives—to have the opportunity to vote as we do.
My next thought, and prayer, is for whoever wins the election. If I think it’s a porkchop pants week for me….the next president is going to have a porkchop SUIT for 4 years.
Get out and vote, and have a big week.
