At the end of my last work day this month I found a tiny egg while bush walking. Right at my feet. Perhaps it had fallen from a nest but I could not find the source.
My first thought on seeing the egg was “new life”! I walked back to my car, reflecting on the past month.
I was committed to work differently this year. It was at the top of my learning plan. The old phrase, work smarter, not harder, was something I wanted to practice. Yet, despite the workload, I still have energy left over to enjoy my break for the next few days. This is working to plan. What has made the difference?
At night I list my tasks for the next day. In the morning, I organise them by priority.
As an independent practitioner, I can pick and choose my work. I chose well this month.
With the reward firmly in sight, productivity has been easy to achieve.
I want more of the same next month.
But, before then, I’m off to enjoy a brief holiday. This, my new life.
Until next time
