Building a Business is Like a Great Meal {+ super exciting announcement!}

Happy Wednesday! {exciting announcement below} The other day, a thought struck me: building a business is like a great meal. It's about the enjoyment of the unfolding, not getting to the end.

808Ok, so let me explain...

If you're anything like me (and I think you might just be), you're constantly feeling like there's another level of success, business achievement or clarity to get to.

No matter how far you've come or how much you've accomplished, there's still a hunger. A desire for more. For better. For bigger.

The desire, though it undoubtedly serves you (high-achiever that you are), it can be a double-edged sword.

Yes, it calls you to play bigger, put yourself out there, keep going. But, if you don't watch out, it could leave you feeling constantly anxious to get "there" and totally unsatisfied here and now.

But, if I were to ask you, what's the point of a great meal?

It's about the enjoying of the meal -- the journey -- right?! It's not about getting to the end! (This concept really hit home with me because delicious date nights are one of my greatest pleasures in life. Give me tasty tapas + uncork some wine, and I'm a happy girl!)

Same goes for your business. The beauty, the enjoyment, the pleasure is in the day-to-day unfolding. The becoming of who you're meant to be.

It's not just about getting "there". Besides, when you do get "there", because you will -- you're too determined not to -- there's going to be a new place you've got your sights set on further down the road. It's just how it goes!

I'm realizing this in a big way right now as I work with an amazingly talented designer to totally revamp CailenAscher.com. Sure, I'm super excited to see how the final result comes together, but I am just so freakin' thrilled about the whole process. I'm savoring it, and loving every minute of it!

So, the next time you find yourself wishing time away because you're so very hungry to get "there", remember the most pleasure you'll ever get from a great meal is in those delicious bites along the way.

Don't rush through it! Savor.
