Having Control of your Schedule

Today I wanted to share a few thoughts about the importance and the blessing of being able to control your schedule. Anyone who goes into business counts this as one of the main reasons for doing so, however, it's a luxury that is not very common among business owners, and in fact, they usually end up being trapped in multiples jobs they created for themselves, with less freedom than they had before. A great topic for another time is how to work on your business, not in your business, but for now, I simply want to express my gratitude that I have control of my time. 

Don't get me wrong, I work long hours, but I'm in the fortunate position that I can work as much or as little as I want each day.  Today I took the opportunity to enjoy what may be the last summer like day of the season.  I can't complain because it's almost halloween, but the weather report indicates that tomorrow the weather will be a lot colder and stormy. Knowing that, and seeing how beautiful it was, I decided to go mountain biking.  It's nice to be able to do something like that at the spur of the moment.  I have to say, it was amazing. The temperature was perfect, and the colors were beautiful.  Here is a picture I took with my iPhone.

I go biking on these trails quite often, but today I had to stop and take a few pictures to try and capture the beauty, none of which would I have enjoyed if I was not able to get a way from my work for a moment.  I'm thankful for the blessing it is to have a successful business, and that I live so close to many amazing biking trails.
