Wow! Talk about major interference! Ever had that happen to you? Where has that shown up in your life?
More importantly, what do you do when you have to get something done — and things just keep coming up that repeatedly knock you sideways!?
Don’t know about you, but I kind of get the attitude, “Must be doing something right! Otherwise, why the resistance?” That’s what this first update is about. For the backstory, read the text below.
Update 1 | As Promised
Watch this to discover the hidden message in every frustration that can help you push through and accomplish what it is that you are trying to achieve.
Back Story: Here’s How It Went
For those of you who like little tales of drama and adventure, this little extra is for you. Of course, it’s completely unnecessary for you to know. I offer it, however, as an encouragement to you.
First, don’t ever put us on a pedestal. We’re ordinary folks, just like you, running into stupid, annoying stuff every day – just like you! Second, be inspired when you realize that you too can learn to put up with stupid, annoying stuff! 🙂
There! Isn’t that inspiring? LOL! 🙂
The point is that you can get started on doing what’s in your heart to do. Don’t let the daily stuff stop you. So, with that said, here’s the woeful tale of my little sage over the past week. Besides, it helps us connect as friends, just like we’d do if we were chatting in real life. That’s important!
Originally sent this out as as a direct email broadcast, because I couldn’t quite get the automatic feed from our website working. That should work. Right? The broadcast glitched, and didn’t go out last Thursday.
So, on Friday, I fixed the glitch that caused our email hosting platform to crash — Only to find out that it didn’t nicely embed the videos. Instead, it reroutes you to YouTube. That is exactly what I’m tryin to keep you out of.
Sorry about that! I’ll fix the embedding, so that it doesn’t do that in future.
Still, it went out. Right?!?
Wrong! Thanks Dave D. for letting me know that only two of the videos were visible. The rest were marked Private. Sigh!
And now, just to add a little insult to injury, YouTube seems to have take away the so-called Modest Branding that makes the ‘Watch on YouTube’ overlay disappear. It works on earlier posts. Won’t work on these. Go figure!
All of this only makes the point of this first video that much stronger. LOL! 🙂
As the old saying goes, “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try, try, and try again!” There’s a lot to be said for flexibility and resilience. Isn’t there? We will get this right … eventually!
The Solution: Here’s How We Are Going to Fix It
Okay, for now, here’s the plan! Well, theoretically anyway …
First, I will post the updates as a series of single posts on the Stellar Impact website. You’ll have figured that out by now, or you wouldn’t be reading this.
Then, I’ll send out a quick broadcast email, telling everyone that’s what I’ve done.
Hopefully I’ve got this all sorted out. Now, put your hands together, cross all your fingers together, and say a little prayer that it will all work smoothly from here on out.
Once again, thank you all for your patience and support while I figure this all out, get the platform in place, and get solidly on the real work we are trying to do.
You folks are the best!
