The Blue Spot
Still in a half dream, John stood up from his bed, trying to wake up, clean his teeth, wash his face, make a coffee, change his night T-shirt against his day suit, make a second coffee, go out of the house; walking on his way to the office, thinking about all he had to do this day. Another too long – too short day in John’s life.
John used to wake up around 7am, but his real day started only at 9am when he could be sitting behind his desk, working, reading over 130 emails, and answering proposals, dealing with problems. Huge problems.
Owner of a juice company, John was always dealing with problems, all day long, all 24 hours’ between 9am and 7pm, like it is supposed to be for a CEO; his obligation was to deal with and to fix problems all day long. John was a problem solver and he liked it. He liked the challenges of his position.
John’s mind, accompanied by his skinny body, started to work long before 9am. From 7am to 9am he was already focused on his workday. If he could remember a dream he had, it was certainly about what happened or would possibly happen inside his office. All his thoughts were about his work, 9am to 7pm; this was his real day, the one he lived in, 24 hours long, every day. Day after day after day, including nights.
There where no weekends for John. Weekends were only a change on his world Landscape. John spent his weekends at fairs -- business fairs, fruit fairs, company fairs - learning all that was there to be learned about his business, after years in the same business he wondered every time that there were always something he did not know about the fruit juice world.
Even the 1 hour break for lunch was spent thinking about what could be improved in the office or organizing his afternoon inside of his mind, speaking to employees about the company, in case he would invite one of them to join him at lunch, which happened from time to time.
Skinny by nature, more tall than large, John wasn’t a fan of exercises; his exercise was the daily walk to work, the walk back home and the steps he walked around and inside the company or weekend fairs. His work already gave him enough adrenaline to deal with.
John was able to silence the world around him. Not only silence, he was able to erase the world around him, almost completely, and focus on more urgent and important things than to contemplate or see what was going on outside his Fruit Juice World; he was focused only on what happens in the one inside of his Company.
If you would ask John what happened before 9am, he could not give you an accurate answer; his mind was focused on the period between 900 and 1900. Focus, Focus, Focus, was all he thought he needed to be successful. Focus on your goal; focus on the solutions to your problems. His brown eyes were always inside of the company and never outside of it.
