I had a kick-off call today for an upcoming project that I’m SO excited about. Thrilled to the point that as I was speaking I spaced out just for a moment to think to myself: “Is this really happening?”
This opportunity came as a result of seeds that were planted months and months ago and it was such a pleasant reminder that while we’re pouring our heart and soul and energy into things, we don’t always know where they will lead. It can be tempting to want to see the fruits of your labor immediately, to know what the direct outcome will be. But more and more I’m learning that indirect outcomes FAR outweighs direct ones.
Whatever heart work you’re doing now, you may not see the outcome in a day or a month or even a year. But down the road you may just find yourself on a phone call asking yourself, “is this really happening?” and you’ll smile knowing that the most delightful wins in life are the ones you never saw coming.
