I misheard the 9th step

Something stuck in my mind from a movie video that Laura and I watched on Saturday where the 9th step was mentioned in AA’s 12 step program. I misheard it to be to “look for reoccurring patterns in your past”. What stuck in my mind was “look for re-accruing patterns in your business”!

The actual 9th step is “making direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.”

How about looking at your business over the past and “look for re-accruing patterns in your business” and by doing this you will “make direct amends to yourself, the people involved and the business”.

As I write this, I realize two things from the following; I’ve completed a great workshop exercise and this was a great and confirming review.

In an excel spreadsheet I labeled columns by; year, the business that I was in that year and “looked for re-accruing patterns in the business”.

Something that was confirming was it reminded me of a few of the lines from my Parable – “as a result of my experiences, I’ve dedicated the rest of my professional life and became a business coach offering a 9 step business program that is proven to create more profit & more time so that you don’t have to give up your life for your business”.

There are no accidents. I offer a 9 step business program! How cool is that.
