Construction Season: A period of time that happens in Wisconsin during early summer to late fall (could be longer) in which almost every main road is closed, and everyone has to take overcrowded detours to get to their destination. Although it may not seem like it at the time, there really is a lesson as well as bright side to everything. Here’s how…

Instead of letting the construction zone get the best of you, plan ahead and be patient. Give yourself additional time to use whichever detour you must take to arrive at your destination on time. Also, be more aware of increased traffic along those detour routes finding glory in the road less traveled. Seems like a simple concept, right?

As you are seeing the orange and black signs out your vehicle window, I challenge you to apply the construction zone metaphor to your everyday life.

Plan: Planning is important as it allows you to prioritize your work, get more done in less time, helps you to produce quality work and keeps one disciplined.

Be Patient: Patience is an important tool in overcoming frustration. Patience allows us to suspend judgment long enough to make informed decisions, thus paving the path to a happy and peaceful life.

If you can handle the construction zones of life - you may find immeasurable benefits, personal growth, as well as the ability to gain more insight and understanding. Want to know how to create a better road map? Connect with me at – I am a speaker, leadership expert and life-changing coach.
