One Hundred Days: Day Fifteen
Just when you think you have things all worked out, you realize they don’t really work anymore and you have to change, modify, pivot your strategy or plan. That is the similarity between the StartUp and recuperation journey.

In 24 hours a lot can change, what was imperative yesterday like pain killers may not be needed today; you’ve advanced to the next step of the healing process…moved through the pain barrier onto the next issue.
So what will my next focus be after tomorrow when the cast comes off, and the stitches in the incisions are removed?
