It’s amazing how little things can break your routine.
Today, while on a video call with my team, I experienced a power outage. Naturally, the internet doesn’t work without power, so I was dropped from the call.
That happened at about 10:45 AM. Something told me the lights would come back on at 11:30 AM.
In the meantime, I fired off a few texts, at which point one of my friends called me and we had a pleasant conversation for about 15 minutes.
I took a moment or two to lay in bed, and wouldn’t you know it, the power came back on at 11:30.
I thought my team had all but dropped off themselves, but the marathon meeting continued until almost 2 PM. It was productive and encouraging.
It’s easy to get frustrated when things don’t go as expected. When you already have your day planned out, you might even feel like God, or the universe is against you.
But the alternate plan is sometimes better than what you think is your primary plan. So, go with the flow and see what you discover.
