TRIPLE III TIME: An Important Deer Hunting Habit

It is impossible to be involved in another deer hunting year and not recall the great experiences, great conversations and especially the great people who have come and gone as part of this life legacy.  My style of hunting allows for a lot of silent sitting and quality thought time.  The cool result is often some progressive Inspiring Innovations company development ideas… and extra special topics to share via these TRIPLE III TIME blog messages.

For some reason as I relived deer hunting days past, I determined that every story, every conversation, from every person was positive.  I remember my Dad telling story after story about being a poor shot and all of the times he missed his target.  But his presentation was always smile-generating.  He would blame his eyes, the sights on his gun or that we made too much noise…. but always with a corny grin.  His positiveness was infectious and has become a memory-sharing legacy we all seem to follow.

So why is this An Important Deer Hunting Habit… a great TRIPLE III TIME message?

I want you to think about your standard response when someone asks: “How was your day?”  I believe most often people start with all the negative, problem things that they experienced… and only when encouraged sort out what may have been positive.  In An Important Deer Hunting Habit language this means… yes, you missed a lot of shots today and maybe you didn’t see much… but you were still “hunting”?!  So when you apply this habit to the “How was your day?” question… you must smile because even though things might not have gone your way, you were still working, helping, sharing, building, dreaming and experiencing.  Opportunities that some never get a chance to be part of.

Bottomline:  You don’t have to be a hunter to understand and apply this An Important Deer Hunting Habit philosophy.  Just appreciate the shots (opportunities) and being involved in the hunt (life).
