We all have to make choices every day over which direction to go.
- We have the regular routes we follow including those we can do with our eyes closed – to the bathroom or our child’s room in the middle of the night.
- There are short journeys in our local area – to school, work, shops or other local amenities.
- Than there are those journeys we make less frequently, but are still familiar, perhaps to visit a relative or friend.
- Finally there are those which we have never taken before.
How do we choose which route to take?
When we are trying to get going, particularly with a new venture, we often want to spend all our time working on that venture. This is really commendable, but it is also very important to make sure that the blinkers don’t come down and we fail to see what is going on around us.
I have been working very hard recently. At the end of the school year there is always plenty to do: paperwork to complete, books and work to tidy up and then to start to think about and prepare for the next academic year.
Add to that my own children finishing for the summer break – one finished a while ago so we are now awaiting the results of his GCSE exams at the end of August. They have their own activities to look forward to and prepare for and this can all take a toll on our own sanity and health.
One of the most important things we can do is to make sure that we take a little time for ourselves – some ‘me’ time.
It’s amazing how nearly a month has gone by since my last post.
I am trying hard to be consistent, but the end of term is always busy for teachers and at the end of the year there is lots of paperwork to complete.
However, alongside all my offline duties I have also been busy online. My last post was about the new coaching course – Internet Business CodeX- set up by my friends Garry Parkes and Gary Simpson.
I joined this coaching along with my husband and we are now busy getting to know the other members of the course. I can already see that even though I have been working on my online business for over two and a half years, I still have lots to learn, but most importantly, to put into practice.
This is something that I know I have not been very good at. I am great at learning and really enjoy exercising the grey matter, however on a practical level I often become stuck, almost afraid to try something out. I know that “there are no mistakes, only learning opportunities” and I am determined to prove that right by getting off my backside and doing something about it.
A couple of days ago I found out that two of the people I met on Alex Jeffreys’ 1st mentoring course are starting their own course in the next few days.
I am really excited about this. Garry Parkes and Gary Simpson are two of the most honest and ethical people you could hope to meet in this often seedy and dishonest world of Internet Marketing.
As well as learning from Alex on MWA 1.0, many of the students also formed their own support networks and the two Gar(r)ys and I were part of the same one. Garry Parkes has also worked directly for Alex Jeffreys so I know without hesitation that I can highly recommend these guys and the mentoring course they have produced.
