TRIAD ECO ADVENTURES

Segway

“Segway” aka “Segue”

Who knew, a noun or a verb? And which came first (hint: invented in the USA approximately 13 years ago). Either way, it spells F-U-N, in a unique kinda way…. as either a noun or a verb. I was first introduced to “Segway” in Dallas @ SMU, while first pursuing a Journalism degree. I say “pursuing”, because I also worked full-time for an airline (one that still exists) and I would take whatever degree would “segway” me to completing undergraduate school. As it turned out, they mailed me two (degrees, not Segways). As I recall, in the course of also starting a magazine (Metroplex Sportsman) during college (launched during summer break) with one of my professors, this became a “Segway” into learning how to bass fish (@ 5:30 in the morning). In Texas, you apparently must start early because it…

Lane 3

Oh my, YES, lane #3…. with lane #4 right there right next to it. If you are a swimmer or a fan of swimming, everyone knows that “lane 3” is supposed to win. Which is why I have always been a fan of lanes #6 and #1, for several reasons. First of all, nothing is guaranteed to anyone. Ask Michael Phelps, now. The applause should certainly go to lanes 3 (and 4) because they have demonstrated the discipline, the passion, the determination, and the results. Ya gotta love it 🙂 But maybe so have lanes 1 and 6. If you are looking (or coaching) for the team to win, and where you might just make the most difference, then we must appreciate and always applaud lanes 1 and 6 too, (to name a few). They just might bring tears of…

F

FLAT spots, our world has plenty of them, doesn’t yours? Even in roller-coaster rides, both on top and near the bottom, where they appear (thank goodness)! Sometimes they are supposed to be there, and sometimes they are NOT. It reminded me while I was playing tennis early this morning, that most of all they are unexpected until one (or several) actually surfaces in your day (or in your life). And there we were, at newly resurfaced blue & green tennis courts, with each of the three balls seemingly to hit a FLAT spot on the surface everywhere. Game ON. So deal with it, learning to adjust with every swing. Really, it wasn’t the ball. Something on the playing field completely out of my control. Perhaps the absence of a primer as the first coat, or maybe simply a frozen night…

E

BLOG #5 (but who is counting?) “E” At first thought, “E” stands for EXCELLENCE. And also for Entrepreneurship. But entrepreneurship alone does not assure excellence, not hardly. At least the cat did have the courage to start a business, we can suppose. But what kinda condition might his/her condition be in? If you are familiar with big-businesses struggles, then small businesses will seem be more so, because it is personal. Which is in complete contrast to much public perception. Excellence is often subjective, not always recognizable when we observe it. Sometimes with tears of joy (& prayer) when we do, yet it often arrives with tears of pain. Most folks can readily chat about entrepreneurship and excellence, most typically as a spectator. Entrepreneurial excellence is a never-ending evasive journey, with more knock-downs than most spectators could begin to stomach. Yet…
