Crush the Peak, Survive the Valley

The Peak is GreatUpward Trend Line

Ok.  So it’s pretty well known that I am riding a huge peak in my career right now.  Since the first of the year, I’ve been Emperor of TimTech and launched TrackeryMe.  All I have to do is keep it going, right??

Thrive on Top

I want to do everything.  Right now.  Everything I touch is good right now.  It’s a wonderful thing, and I am really enjoying it.  But guess what?  It won’t last.

Nobody has a nice smooth graph line in their business.  There are always peaks and valleys, the secret is to keep the trend line rising..

I will do everything in my power to extend the peak that I am on.  I’ll do the things I do every day plus I will make sure that all the little things are done also.  I will try to flatten the top of this peak, and knock the rubble down in front of me to make a plateau.  I’ll answer every email, every skype every tweet.

Survive the Lows

I know it’s going to change, I know this run will get less rosy.  I have real hopes that I can keep this valley above the trend line, changing the line to a little more up…

But the secret, the deep secret of this or any other business is to survive and even to thrive in the low spots.  How do you do that?  Hard work.

It takes grinding hard work to thrive when the tide is against you.  Everyday, every day. Grind it out, do what needs doing, and at least one more thing.  Take the extra couple of minutes to help somebody, offer a hand to a person just getting started.  Grind.  Survive, Thrive.

The Result

By grinding out the lows, the result is longer peaks.  The preparation you do in the valley means more time at the top.  It really does work that way.

I’d love to have a nice smooth graph line for my business.  I’ll settle for survive and thrive in the valleys so that I can kick it real hard on the peaks.

And in the End

I know, I KNOW that the peak I’m standing on right now is a direct result of the grinding I did in the last valley.

I’m just sayin’
