Thanks for popping in. New Year’s Resolution: CALM IT KERMIT! I have a tendency to spiral. Starts out fine. Picks up momentum. Pedals like a loony. Forgets to eat. Spirals. Starts running around waving arms in air. So this year: CALM IT KERMIT.
Let me give you an example. Tomorrow we (Paul and I) were scheduled to get up at 5am, hit the road early to avoid congestion, drive up to Peterborough, do a 12noon hour and a 4pm hour, then pack up and head back home in rush hour, to land back at base at about 9pm. Then we were going to repeat the whole exercise on Saturday, for an 11am a 2pm and a 4pm.
THAT’S MENTAL. THAT’S NOT SUSTAINABLE. THAT’S NOT ENJOYABLE.
I could feel the pressure and resentment building up, physically feel it. So I decided to CALM IT KERMIT. Do you know Kermit was born in 1965? So he’s coming up for retirement too!
So. Change of plan. We’re travelling up together this evening, after the traffic has calmed down. And we’re staying up there until Saturday evening.
We may be away from home for a few days, but we will not be worried about getting to the TV studios – because we’ll be there! We can have planning meetings – and do plenty of business from there. Call it stress management; I shall call it CALM IT KERMIT.
And now I am off to pottery for the afternoon. It really is crucial to maintain a Work-Life Balance, and pottery is all part of a Clarity-Controlled diet!
Love & Hugs,
PS. We did agree to do an extra LIVE TV show at 8pm tomorrow evening. Well, we’re up there, aren’t we?!? There’s no hope….
