A client told me last week that he was selling his practice "to get rid of the headache of ownership".
I asked him:
"So which headache will you replace it with?"
Many years ago, a friend left North London to escape "the traffic, the weather, the cost of living and the lifestyle" - and moved to Bali, from where he carried on his virtual consultancy business.
Later, he told me "I now complain about the monsoon and the power cuts".
Life is a headache if you choose to interpret the challenges of life as an ache in the head.
Alternatively, if you choose to embrace every day as an adventure that includes an obstacle course, you might show up differently.
You cannot get rid of the headache, you can only replace it with another one.
Be careful what you wish for.
