What Do You Do When Things Don’t Go As Planned?

We woke up today in our little piece of Paradise ready to tackle on the day as we have a few of projects on the go right now. We had a wonderful breakfast meeting with the founder of Bali Entrepreneurs Resort, responded to a few emails and then…

We found out that the internet was going to be down for the rest of the day as they would be working on the server!

Booooooooo!!! 🙁

Our plans for the day crumbled, just like that!

Let me ask you…

What do you do when things don’t go as planned? What do you do when things don’t go your way?

What do YOU do? How do you typically react?

You see, we can’t always control what happens, but we can ALWAYS control how we react.

We were a little peeved at first of course but then we started thinking about our options…

Sure we could get angry and frustrated about the situation and complain about not having received a warning that this was going to happen…

Sure we could go to an internet cafe and work from there…that is the beauty of having an online business…we can work from anywhere! As long as there is an internet connection of course!!!

Rather we said, “What the heck, let’s go out and have fun!” 😀

We decided to take advantage of this situation and turn it into an opportunity for some playtime! Kinda like the good old snow days we had as kids back in Canada!

So we got on our scooter and headed to Monkey Forest for an afternoon of family fun. We hiked, fed some monkeys, and had some laughs!

The highlight of our adventure came right as we were about to leave the park when a monkey climbed up on James and stole Abby Fae’s sippy cup right out of his hands! It happened so quick, he didn’t even realize what happened!!

Monkey Stole









The thief then proceeded to drink the water out of the cup like he owned it and when we tried to take it back, he ran away and climbed up a tree.

Then, he looked at us as if to say, “Nanananana…catch me if you can, suckers!” 😛

Bahahaha! It was too funny…we just had to laugh!

So that’s how we enjoyed our day without stressing about all the work that wasn’t getting done.

And guess what…

We came home to find out that we had a few sales come in while we were out! 🙂

Oh the beauty of automated systems! We love what we do! 😉
