Welcome to new members this week! I’m wondering what great content you’ve been finding on the site.
There is so much to discover, and we’ll use the blog to highlight some of our favourites. Check out Andrew May’s “How To Be On When You Have To” as he knocks the Multitasking Myth on it’s head and shows you how to create more time for yourself…
Andrew says “Most of us have developed bad “e-mail etiquette” because of the sheer convenience of the medium and the fact that we haven’t taken time out to think about how we can control, rather than be controlled by this tool. Ingrained habits are difficult to change but the first thing in acquiring more productive habits is awareness.”
He also discusses the value of going slow… we need the go-slow times to re-energise for the fast pace. This has been a challenge for me to learn over the past few years, but I must be learning well. I’ve just been through my calendar for the next few months and marked days or half days off on either side of business trips. That felt really good! Even when you love what you do, it’s essential to switch off at times… Create the time for yourself… if you don’t plan it, it will get taken up with something else!
This weekend I’m switching off and enjoying the Olympics… what inspirational people our athletes are… will I switch off or find myself inspired to write articles?
