In 2014 I had a really significant health scare. As a result I made significant changes to my lifestyle that probably saved my live.
I stopped drinking, started exercising and ate better. I lost 30 kg in eight months. I felt better than I had ever felt before.
Five years later and I still don’t drink. I still exercise most days, but not as much as I would like to and I am careful about what I eat. I have put on a little bit of weight, don’t feel as fit and I have definitely finished 2018 feeling exhausted and run down.
I know I need to make changes in the way I manage my life in order to feel better.
2018 was a great year. I wrote a book, my business really took off and I wrote a lot of blogs that got a heap of great feedback. I really felt that I had started to build momentum in 2018. But I was working 80 hour weeks on a regular basis to achieve those results and not really managing the small stuff, the admin very well.
I’m a big picture person. My brain goes 100 miles an hour all day every day. I am intuitive and I like to think that I am quite a good problem solver.
But I am terrible at the small stuff; like managing my money and my time. Ask my accountant and my bookkeeper.
I say yes to nearly everything for fear of not making enough money and I am constantly thinking everyone knows how to run my business better than I do. So I don’t trust my gut when it comes to business.
I have changed my behaviour before and I am going to do it again in 2019.
This year I will say no. I will trust my own judgment and go for it. This year I will work with my accountant and bookkeeper instead of hiding from them. This year I will learn to value the benefits of spending time in the detail.
So I am restructuring the way I conduct my business.
I am going to focus my energies on running my leadership program Teams That Thrive. I am going to help more people by creating a community that cares about themselves and others – The Thrive Tribe.
We’re going to work together to create a positive workplace, where people feel: –
- that the rest of the team has their back,
- And where people will have those tough conversations(because it’s better to know than not know)
I am ready for change; to look after myself and my family better.
