Embracing Change and Productivity: Moving at Your Own Pace

The pace of life has been changing rapidly lately, and it’s both terrifying and incredibly exciting. It’s like I went to sleep on a Monday and woke up on Friday with the idea of acquiring multiple businesses. It’s astonishing how we often feel overwhelmed in our current situations.

Reflecting back on my journey, I remember starting at Basin Coop in their feed mill, feeling like I had to move fast. Then, I became the DOT manager at Crossfire, where I had to build the DOT program from scratch, and it felt like I was running. Starting our own businesses intensified that feeling.

Now, as we grow and scale our business, it seems like I’m running even faster. But it’s not about the speed; it’s about how we handle it.

Recently, I took an employee experience professional on a business trip, and he remarked on my productivity. He pointed out that during our 3-day trip, I never seemed to stop moving. Even in challenging situations, like getting stuck in construction for 4.5 hours without cell service, I found ways to make the best of it with team building activities and brainstorming.

I’m constantly on the move, listening to audiobooks at 1.75x speed and retaining the information. This might seem overwhelming to some, but I know what I’m capable of, and I attribute my success to God.

In both good times and bad, I turn to Him for guidance. When considering new business acquisitions, I seek His wisdom to make the right decisions.

The point of this blog is that we’re all busy, and we all feel like we’re running, but at different paces. Comparing ourselves to others or even our past selves can be misleading. What matters is our journey and progress.

As we embark on this new chapter, I’m excited to share the amazing changes coming to our community soon. I can’t reveal everything just yet, but stay tuned.

In the end, it’s essential to choose to see the bright side of things and take action. We have the power to decide how we approach every situation. Reflect on your own journey, compare it to the past, and ask yourself why it’s better or worse. Don’t compare yourself to others unless it motivates you to move forward.

Until next time,
Dan Greer
