It’s 6:43am PDT and I’m on my way to Horseshoe Bay / West Vancouver, BC on a BC Ferry from Nanaimo, BC.
I woke up at 4:15am and had a shower by candlelight – not because I wanted a spiritual experience – but because we have been without electricity since about noon on Sunday, November 26, 2006 due the rare winter snow storm that we were hit with over the weekend.
Coaching is about commitment and consistency and this is what I am demonstrating this morning as I make a rather treacherous trip to Vancouver, BC to speak at the Independent Financial Brokers Summit at the Hyatt Regency Hotel.
So at -4C I sent out at 5am to drive over icy roads to catch the ferry while listening to the radio hearing stories of downed trees, trolley lines and accidents on Vancouver streets so the trip from Horseshoe Bay to downtown Vancouver should be a real treat.
I called the Hyatt once more before I drove on the ferry hoping that the event was going to be cancelled because from what I am hearing on the radio, attendance will be light.
Oh well, this day was booked to speak and that is what I am going to do. At the same time, I intend to attract an extraordinary chance meeting with a center of influence that will lead to sponsored cross Canada speaking opportunities for a large company.
I’m attempting to publish this Blog via a wireless PC Connect Card which in effect is like having a cell phone installed into my Tablet PC to gain internet access literally anywhere – even on a BC Ferry – and it works!.
What would life be like without a few toys!
