As a rule, I am very much on board with being all in on the long game, as Gary Vaynerchuk often talks about. This simply means there are few decisions that I will make today that doesn’t take into account the future vision I have for my work and my family. This means I often am thinking 2-3 years ahead, at least.
With the recent events surrounding my son’s birth and extended stay in the NICU, I’ve been forced into this state of mind that I am less accustomed to – one minute, one hour, one day at a time. Right now, trying to figure out how I can get my family one step closer to buying a home in 3 years doesn’t matter. What matters right now is that my son is a little better today than he was yesterday and that the rest of the family stays sane in the process of a lot of traveling to and from Nashville.
But, that’s okay.
It’s okay because it’s the season of life we are in. Our current set of circumstances demand the day to day focus and resilliency. The good news is that I know that one day soon, Zacchaeus will be home and our family will be able to return to a routine that we were once accustomed to.
Until then, we live one day at a time.
