Imagine your child has arrived and for the first 15 months he hits every milestone, and everything seems perfect. One day you notice he's been using fewer words until becoming virtually non-verbal. You start a battery of tests and evaluations. Everything you took for granted is no longer the case. At 18 months of age, Pablo was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder.
Next, picture an opportunity you have targeted for some time. You know how to put together a winning proposal, but the RFP is completely different than what you were expecting. Everything you took for granted is no longer the case. Now you must reassess everything and come up with a new plan quickly in order to achieve the success taken for granted.
Now nine, my son’s journey and his everyday struggles have taught me incredible life lessons, many of which I have been able to apply to my marketing career. Adapting quickly, targeting ever-changing goals, searching knowledge, becoming a team player, and looking at the world in a myriad of ways, are just a handful of areas I've been able to excel in by taking a microscopic look at my life with Pablo.
