I have been a little quiet of late due to some heavy work commitments which have been keeping me very busy. This is something I feel a little guilty for as it has meant that I have had to neglect some of my social media and blogging activities which are some of the things that take great pleasure in. However, now that things are starting to settle and get to an even beat I can finally start to look around a little more.
One of the things that I have always taken for granted is the ability to be able to rule the time that I spend and how that time is allocated. What the last 4 weeks have taught me is that there will be some times when things will rule me and while that feels very uncomfortable it is none the less necessary from time to time.
So what did this experience teach me?
- First and foremost *make* the time to stop and look at what you are doing with your time. While ever you are doing things as they hit you, without assessing their priority first you can never make progress.
- Take half an hour just to sit and think about all the stuff that you have running rampant in your head and get it down on paper, at least that way you can start to make sense of it all.
- Don’t be that person that has lost their head. When you are bombarded by requests to do ‘stuff’, try to slow down and think a little more.
- Most of all remember that there’s always tomorrow!
For me though I need to bring order to working life again as things are starting to get really busy…maybe time to start hiring again!
