Making the Best of Life’s Delays

My son, Redford, edited the video from this post


If you don’t get stuck in an airport at least occasionally then you don’t travel enough.

For years I have seen people go from elated and excited for their trip to becoming rabidly ridiculous due to inconvenience interrupting a vacation.

For some the imperfect flight connection can ruin your business life, strain relationships, and add extra pounds to the frame.

What we must realize is that a majority of the time you are literally unable to do anything about it.

So why not promise yourself you’ll make the most of it?  Turn that frown upside down!

Recently I had a two hour layover suddenly become four hours and counting depending on snowfall throughout the country.  Stuck at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport I could have purchased any number of emotional eating deep dish pizzas, donuts, or tasty desserts.

Instead I went to task against my FitBit, the great personal health communicator indicating how lazy of a butt you are all day, or how awesome you did with all those steps!

Challenge accepted!  10,000 steps here I come.

There’s nothing more awkward than a selfie stick at an airport, so please enjoy this video.

When I showed the footage to my kids, my amazing son, Redford, 11 years old, said he’d accept the challenge to edit the entire video.  Amazing kid – how fun this turned out.  He is officially my new video editor 🙂

What do you do to make the best of life’s delays?
