Well it has been a great summer and good trip over to Europe. I have already done a couple of video blogs but have been holding back until I could find time to write a short primer to get back into the blogging. So here we go ...
Boom! Like hitting a brick wall ...
Ha! So coming back into work again after the summer break hasn't been a bed of roses. All the work itself is really inspiring ... it is just the amount and the shift in gears. I had to wind myself up again. I am finding the more my work load increases the more I have to attend to my own well being - eating well, sleeping (not always possible with a 2 year old), exercising and blocking out time to just crack on with emails and to do lists. My days can easily be filled with endless meetings and conference calls if I don't make time to actually get some work done.
The other things I am learning is to enjoy my work again. I actually love what I do and once I get beyond "I shouldn't be working now" (like writing this blog at 9:45pm when I have a 7:30am meeting!) and just do the things that I want to as well as the urgent stuff - I just feel more balanced. I am not advocating endless days but a shift in attitude towards my work has given me some space to just enjoy it, rather than battle against the amount of it.
I feel like I am getting back into the swing of it, so here's a few things coming up I am excited about this autumn.
