For the past three years Chris Lema has invited me to join him at his event – CaboPress. For three years I have declined the request.
I declined previously for two reasons:
- Didn’t think I had much to offer,
- Afraid of the impressions hanging out on a resort in Mexico would have on my team.
What I failed to realize however is that it wasn’t about what I could offer, but the impacts it would have on me as an individual, and more importantly the renewed insights I could bring back to the team. In short, like many of the decisions in my life, I was an idiot.
This year, with the beginning of a new chapter in my life I said yes. As I sit here and reflect on that decision, I feel strongly it was one of the best decisions I have made in a long time.
