Beach Walk 272 – I’d Rather Be Surfing

You’ll have to watch the entire show to understand the title.

Thanks for all the great comments on yesterday’s show. BTW, with Secret Cameraman’s help, we got the poll working. He’s moved from the “I’d rather be dead” phase of the flu, to just plain miserable and minimally functional. Mahalo for all your kind wishes.

The tricky part for me is making the decision, “in the moment,” as to who comes first, me or job. I want to be able to put myself first (à la “in the event of a loss of cabin pressure”) and I don’t want that to be at the expense of my clients, but actually in service to them. That takes some mind-bending in the typical work situation. It’s so automatic to suffer now in hopes of a better tomorrow.

Hawaiian words
Mua: first
Hana: job, work

Be in Touch!


  1. Many Mahalos again (I posted a comment on show #171 also) for all the Get Well wishes. It’s a tremendous boost to the spirit to have people from all over the country sending you Get Well wishes and energy.

    Mahalo everyone. 🙂

    Yesterday this bug knocked me out flat. Rox took care of me and made a huge pot of homemade chicken soup. No doubt that helped speed my recovery.

    Mahalo Rox. 🙂

  2. Thanks for all the extra scenery shots today. It was beautiful. Lots of distractions to deal with but just like Pohaku says over on, its exactly what we needed to know at this precise moment in time.

    Happy Mahalo day 🙂


  3. Funny… how the word job (hana) is close to the word goodbye (nana).
