The other day I went to see my doctor for some antibiotics to treat a worsening upper respiratory infection.

“I haven’t been sick in years,” I coughed.

“I’m sorry you’re sick now,” she responded.

“Oh NO!” I croaked. “This is the PERFECT time for me to get sick. I just finished a solid month out of town doing speeches and I’ve got this entire next month off. This is great.”

“Uh huh.” She smiled a patronizing smile, obviously not getting what I was saying.

But it’s true! Haven’t you noticed that when you’re in the flow of life it’s possible to even get sick at the right time?

Today, let’s consider life’s timing and how you can use it to your advantage.

Remember to post your questions and comments — I respond to them all personally.

BTW, you’ve probably noticed that I don’t accept outside advertising — that’s because cool people like you share these messages with coworkers, friends, and family who will often hire me for speeches, and/or purchase my books, Complaint FreeⓇ bracelets, and online programs.

So if this post inspired you, touched your heart, or expanded your mind, please do everyone a favor and share it with at least one other person whom you think would like it as well.
