So life got pretty busy there for a while… And suddenly it’s halfway through the year.
Apparently the way to stop blogging, is to not do it one day… or the next, and rinse and repeat until eventually, it feels very weird to be back.
It’s been a crazy year. My attempt to go it alone until Jan 2012, has been wildly profitable, both business wise and emotionally. In my most busy and stressed out patches this year, while lying awake at night, unable to go to sleep because I worked until bedtime… the one BIG HUGE feeling of relief I had was that THIS is the worst it gets.
Compared to about every other stage of business stress I have experienced, this year has been one big happy walk in the park. I may be racing through the park like a headless chicken, but that’s not always such a bad thing.
One cool development as a result of having no ‘dependents’ has been my ability to expand out of my office an work on site. This has been hugely fascinating because I totally issed the ‘work for someone else’ part of my education. I love having a social club, understanding internal politics and hierarchies and processes and the joys of relying on your teammates… Just being one small cog. I now understand what my friends are talking about when discussing ‘work’.
So now we have that out of the way, I have ticked off the ‘do that awkward blog post’ task and will hopefully be repeating this more often :)
Happy half way mark everyone!
