Give Me Liberty or Give Me The Month Of March!



Who needs it?

New Year’s Resolutions?

Ah, let them all melt with the snow.

Even a better idea?

Build a snowman and plop those


right on the snowman as the buttons that all

snowmen seem to have.

What about those buttons anyway?


Surely, there are stats somewhere

that can give us the necessary information

to help us determine

how many buttons

a real serious snowman should have.

Don’t you think?

But since I am at 144 words already,

maybe another time for those stats.


We can move on to the real story here.

How long has it been since you have put your kite into the air?

Don’t rush.

Take some time with your answer.

It is of major importance here!


Because it can only happen one month out of the year!

Yes … sure it takes some work to catch the wind just right. If you are anything like me, then you may have to run the length of a football field … once and maybe even twice.

Possibly, I could be the odd one, but I have never had the experience of hitting the field with my kite and just stand there while it magically lifted itself without my help.

Have you? 

Yes, it should be that simple … but no matter how I envision the experience, it just never works out that way.

I even plan my strategy for the day, months ahead.

The bow has to be tight enough to catch the wind if you want lift off. If it’s not, I can guarantee that it will rise just high enough to break apart when it spirals into the ground. Slam! It’s over. Gone forever. It’s crying time. (Think Ray Charles)

The tail. The tail has to be just the right length, with the right amount of weight and dynamically designed to capture and hold the moment when the kite begins to lift up into the wind.  

The tail is the “neutrino” that bounds you and the kite into a force of one. Steadily using the wind to build your climb - you now can sense that success has a good chance of happening. No tail? You may get liftoff but destined for a tree limb or wire most likely.

The string. This is very important. Strategically important stuff if you want to climb so high that the clouds are within reach. To get to that one spot in the sky where you can see over the mountain tops and know what lies ahead.

A place where the lone eagle soars.

Do you know that “All fledgling eaglets practice attaining life in a process called branching. First flights are generally downward glides from the nest to a lower branch or the ground.”

Lift off for the eagle just does not happen nor does it just happen in life for us.

That string on the kite is not just an element needed to keep your hold on it. You must know when to pull the string tight, when to unravel it just a bit. Use the string to make the gains needed on that free leverage you get while the wind blows upon your back.

Life as an entrepreneur is not just a resolution.

You will not find one true solution in any resolution.

Dreams are not made on resolutions at all.

Dreams are made with the tears of adversity.

With work that makes you sweat.

With that extra stretch or the unraveling of the mind.

The hardest part is cutting the strings attached to what you know.

To let go of the reality of today no matter how good or bad that may be.

I challenge you to make ready for the cutting of the strings of your life.  

To begin the practice of attaining your dreams in a process called branching.

Dare yourself to let that kite fly as high as it can go.

Then go ahead and cut the strings.

Don’t worry. 

You will be just fine.

Now just how long has it been since you have put your kite into the sky?


 "Sometimes in this life we hear
Calling from somewhere
Sometimes it is loud and clear
Sometimes it's so softly there"



Why Put it Off Any Longer?
