Firstly, I totally forgot last night. I didn't resist, it wasn't a case of couldn't be bothered, I just plain and simple forgot. I only remembered this morning when I was thinking about something that I thought I might write about. I got off my telecall last night, had dinner, watched Poldark and went to bed. When I realised I felt disappointed and then guilty, and then I thought I simply forgot, so I let go the guilt and got on with my day. It's not the end of the world. It is how I respond from here that matters. So here I am again. I could easily have thought now I can't be bothered as I have already missed one. I have to say it was very tempting, but no I am here to see it out.
Anyway, here are some of my learnings
- I have mostly been doing it at night before bed, but think I will be fresher and more inspired if I do it in the morning, after my morning pages and cup of tea
- I want the posts to be personal and authentic, and hope they will be inspirational, thought provoking or insightful to others
- I don't know that I love my laptop enough, or routine enough to want to do daily posts, but posts 2 or 3 times a week or even once a week would probably work for me.
- Posts can be sharing something from life, leadership or something that inspires me personally
- It is probably best to keep it simple, and only one key message per post. I don't always find that easy, as I love to connect dots and my mind is like a butterfly flitting from one thing to the next.
- I can post photos, u tube clips, links to other cool stuff and inspirational quotes.
- I can share things that I notice I am sharing with clients that they find useful
- You may also have realised that I love to ask questions of myself, and of you
- I should also use spell check
That's all from me just now, it's minus 4 degrees tonight. I have my hot water bottle and I am now going to enjoy 10 minutes reading Terry Pratchett. He is a favourite in our household.
