This morning I took the time to listen to a recorded coaching session of myself that took place about 6 weeks ago. I used it as a yardstick for what I had accomplished as compared to what I had said that I would accomplish.
It was a fair measurement and I did okay but I failed in some areas.
What it did achieve was re-igniting my enthusiasm for writing my book.
Let’s face it, life has a way of moving in and forcing your dreams into the back seat at times.
It certainly has with me anyway.So where am I now at with my book?
I have some people who wish to be involved in my book and to tell their stories. Some have already sent me the outlines of these and they are now waiting for me to begin writing them. My timeline is to have their stories back to them for proofing by the end of July.
Some of you have had a lot going on in your lives and are taking time.
I understand that.
Now that I am working, I can devote more time to writing. I am looking forward to hearing from you.
Whilst I wait, I certainly won’t be sitting on my hands that’s for sure. I have things to do.
I don’t think it’s sunk in yet that I don’t have to go to work tomorrow but I have noticed that my anxiety levels have dropped. Generally by Sunday morning I am beginning to show outward signs of anxiety as it builds toward Monday mornings.
It was a little surreal locking up at work on Friday afternoon. I forced myself to look around and take in the familiar surroundings knowing that I wouldn’t be back in there first thing Monday morning. (I will be back there on Tuesday as I have to sign keys and stuff back in and go out to lunch with my ex-boss but that will be different).
However this morning is all about the enthusiasm that I feel for my book. This afternoon after I get home (I have a baby shower to attend), I am going to outline a plan for this book and put together the bones of my proposal.
Organisation is the key.
And lists…. I always need lists!!
Onward and upward from here.
