Sometimes running a business is like putting out fires. I feel like I’ve been doing a lot of that lately. Today was no different–it was a server issue. These are always unexpected things that pop up, kind of like…fires.
You never expect it to happen and when it happens it always changes what you had planned to do.
The important thing that I try to remember is that I normally say no days go according to plan and something always seems to happen. It brings me peace to have that expectation because when things do go according to plan it’s a gift. If they don’t, it’s expected.
