I had a dream that I would like to share with you.
I was looking at buying a small apartment building.
Next door a framed-out house was being built on one of those oddly-shaped urban in-fill lots.
Just as I was about to make the deal a gang of enraged Mariachis showed up, angry as heck about something.
They lined up against the building, spun it around on its foundation and tumbled it down the hill.
As I looked at it, upside down and wrecked, a bulldozer showed up next door and tore down the house frame on the odd lot.
The owner of that lot had immediately purchased the now vacant lot and was going to build a bigger structure on the now combined piece of land.
I woke up, thinking, ‘Mariachis?’
I also knew it was my mind telling me to think bigger about what I am building. Tear down what you have, combine it and make it grand.
In my case I don’t need an angry band of musicians or a bulldozer to do that for me.
It was a fun dream and unlike anything I’d ever had before.
It made me take a step back and think about what I’m doing, basically do a shakedown of what I have and what I am planning.
For you, perhaps this is entertaining, or not. And that’s okay. When the time comes you may remember this story about checking your assumptions about what you are building and if it is as big and grand as it can possibly be.
