This week has been a rollercoaster ride so to speak - it started off pretty sanely but by yesterday I had become ensconced in the grip of the dreaded lurgy. I've been battling what I call a "potential cold" - bit sniffly for the past few weeks and then "bang!" - it hit me with a vengeance on Wednesday morning. I struggled through RPM and luckily most of the participants were closer to the back because by Track 7 I was starting to become a bit of a "dial faker" (and we all know that RPMers hate to fake that dial) - so things were starting to get a bit touch and go by then. I've spent yesterday and today being breathless and coughing at the same time (not a pretty look) , and I've caught up with a bit of admin, though I am likely to take tomorrow off as well.
I've also had an interesting week in what I've learned about life. Hmmm, what have I learned ? a)Sometimes the way you receive your answers to pressing questions is in the way you least expect, but you still get your answers!
b)How much talent there is out there if you put it out there - yesterday I learnt that our Erica is a Myer Briggs Type Facilator/Educator. I've written about how much I've gotten out of the Myer Briggs test and I was able to bombard Erica with all sorts of questions - my clients are continually teaching me..THANKS ERICA!!!
c)Trust your intuition, tread your own path!! (essential for all NF types)
d) That there are others out there that love Star Wars as much as I do. Yes, I could sit and watch Yoda speak for hours!
e) That sometimes things are difficult, they are hard, but it doesn't mean they are wrong (I got that gem from pulling up a pew!) So keep on keeping on!
f) That those who are the leaders in their field are abundant in their sharing of knowledge and love of what they do - today I am singling out Alwyn Cosgrove, Eric Cressey and Mike Robertson. I have just picked up Eric Cressey's "Maximum Strength" and it's almost (kidding!) as good as his newsletters.
g) Pumpkin soup is wonderful when you're feeling under the weather.
