Reading Rainbow

November 11th, 2010

Driving home today from one of my ‘downtown clients’, I saw a rainbow in the sky.

Most folks spend so much time searching for pots of gold (read: strategic initiatives, financial results, new products, higher compensation, more customers, nicer cars) that we forget to enjoy rainbows.

They’re quite beautiful, of course… and made famous one ROY G BIV. (I learned that acronym in college and still remember those colors of the rainbow: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet.)

Rainbows are here one moment. Gone the next.

Increased earnings, bigger houses and acquiring a competitor… those last a lot longer.

They are important.

Rainbows are beautiful.

Life is better with both.

Seen a rainbow in the sky lately… or were you too busy to notice?

    This was beautiful David…… as for me I have noticed rainbows off and on when I am on the road… BUT I have to say that when I do notice them .. I go way back to my growing up days in India… specially the times when I was a teenager and spent some 3 years on the Islands 🙁 Andaman and Nicobar Islands) .. those were the rainbows I will never forget….!….
    I could drive forever .. if there was no GPS in my car…
