Have you ever seen the sunrise while walking on a San Diego beach?
If not, I highly recommend it. It will breathe magic into all but the most Dalek-like of hearts.
And sometimes you’ll learn some powerful business lessons too. (Which is precisely what happened to Roo and I just this very morn.)
To understand, first you must know that almost everyone LOVES Roo. Every time I take him out, we get mobbed by throngs of people saying “wudda cutie”... “sucha good boy”... and my favorite: “dawwwwww”...
Today was no different.
Roo made many a friend.
Except for one grumpy old man who did not like Roo and made no secret about it.
So what’s the lesson in that?
The lesson is this:
No matter what you do—in business, marketing, or life—there will always be a small group of people who don’t like it. (What the kids refer to as “haters”.)
And if you listen to your “haters” and stop what you’re doing, you’ll deprive everyone else a bit of joy.
It’s like that Breaking Bad episode with the fly.
It was by far the most hated BB episode of all time. And yet, many people called it a “masterpiece”.
In other words:
Don’t fear the grumpy old dude on the beach. Simply walk towards your throng of fans.
