To have done it a couple of times in Business is respectable but its not the same. I dont know why it irritates me. I know these “accomplishments” mean nothing now in practice life but I still wish I had done it at least once. I know I was close on several occasions but “those names” don’t go to the list and get invited for “the dinner.” Its not like I dn’t have a dinner invitation myself, I do but its not the dinner I would prefer to attend.
I can be such an overachiever sometimes, never satisfied constantly carping about what more I could do. Gauging my accomplishments and predicting my future on numerical grades, awards and prizes. I need to slowly learn to let go, pick my battles and enjoy the journey rather than just get caught up with the destination.
