Here I am sitting at the airport in Maui. What a great week we had. One of the highlights of our trip was the Tour da Food with the great Bonnie Friedman.
As we drove around the island in search of delicious, local food, I noticed the gas prices. $4.78 per gallon! We all agreed that those prices were outrageous, and then Bonnie said something that stuck with me.
Our new foodie friend said that she stopped worrying about the gas prices because she couldn’t do anything about them.
I was impressed.
Why worry about things you cannot control? Isn’t that a waste of time and energy?
In sports, you can’t control the weather, umpires or results, so you needn’t worry about them. Instead, focus on the things you can control, like your effort, attitude and reactions.
Bonnie shifted her focus from the incredibly high gas prices to providing exceptional service.
Be like Bonnie today.
