I am often asked, 'How is business?' and my normal reply is 'Fabulous' I truly love what I do and if anything it is a labour of love rather than something I feel is work. My morning routine tends to be in front of the computer drafting, creating, researching and organising - I even smile as I work.
The thing is, I have recently moved from juggling things in my head to keeping a 'to do list'. I used to keep a 'to do list' all of the time in my previous line of work because I was so busy. Then .... a moment of realisation yesterday when I questioned why on earth I keep a 'to do list' now? Initially I put it down to an ageing brain - am I really getting old? Then I put my ageing brain in gear and realised ..... It's because I am busy ..... again!
Busy has crept up on me and I have deadlines and responsibilities again .... how easy it has been to step into old working practices without even realising it, although I eat better and sleep more than 3 hours per night now (smile). So how is business? ..... 'It's fabulous thank you'
Over the weekend I have been working on a few things.
- A review of Thursday's presentation at the Edinburgh Dental College
- Some filming and workbook creations for the education arm of Lift The Bar. A company that provides top quality education and CPD for personal trainers and fitness professionals. (www.liftthebar.com)
- Preparation work for my 'once a year' communication course that will run on 24 and 25 March
- Preparation for an international webinar for Precision Nutrition, a company that provides expert nutritional coaching for professionals (www.precisionnutrition.com) On Monday I will offer communication solutions to help with challenging conversations - how to manage lies, emotion and those awkward situations we tend to shy away from.
All in all, a lot to be thankful for. Meeting new people is one of my most favourite things and I will be meeting a lot of new people in the next few months.
