Making Tough Decisions

I’m writing a blog post every day in November as part of a writing challenge. Read why here.

Just a quick thought today…

Today is the second day of the SIETAR-USA conference, a conference I have attended for the past four years. I’m on the Board of Directors and the conference planning team, and there were many people I would love to have talked with. Yet I’m not in Washington DC with my colleagues. I also turned down a consulting gig in December.


Because living your ideal global life sometimes calls for making tough decisions. It wasn’t easy to say no to either event; I really wanted to be at both. But you can’t live the life you want if you’re not willing to make tough decisions.
