“Principle 7.5” – Storm Isaias

Sometimes the best planning doesn’t work because forces of nature, and I mean that in a literal sense, divert your course.

That’s what happened to me this week. I was in the midst of finishing my blog post for this week and with a tremendous Boooom … my computer screen went black; our power was gone. I couldn’t access my blog draft anymore and the internet was gone as well. A huge tree in our neighborhood had fallen across the street taking all kinds of cables down with it.

What do to? I felt miserable for a little while because I had cut it so tight with my writing… but there wasn’t much I could really do except for waiting; hoping that power would be restored quickly.

OK, it hasn’t happened as quickly as I would have hoped, but compared with other areas, we are still at the top of the line of getting our power back. To cut a long story short, since it is already Saturday, I decided to skip this week’s post of my book discussion about Story Branding. I’ll continue next week with “Principle 8 – Being Everywhere.”

Have a wonderful weekend and see you next week,
