Taking a Break
I am taking a break from blogging. Just a short hiatus to take care of some personal business. Not sharpening the saw this time, but taking two weeks off to move house. I have accomplished a massive decluttering in the past two weeks (well, as massive as a decluttering can be when you’ve only lived somewhere for two years!) and now it’s time to pack up and manage some small renovations at the new place.
Occasional Breaks are Necessary
Sometimes it’s important to give focus to what becomes temporarily important. I do this each summer when focusing on my family and personal well being takes the forefront. Right now I simply need to focus my attention on the move. I have found it difficult to provide the quality of work I expect to deliver while dealing with this major life transition so it makes sense to simply take a little time off. There was a time in my life when I did not do this. Instead I just powered through work without taking a break. I handled it all. Did my work suffer? Maybe, but I never got any clear feedback that it did. Did my personal well-being suffer? You bet it did. My older, wiser self makes different choices. So I’m taking a break.
After the Break
Thanks to the magic of scheduling my Twitter feed (@sweetcoachcons) continues during this time. And I will focus on some upcoming speaking engagements I have in the limited work time that’s available over the next two weeks. After all, I’ll need a break from the move! When I return to regular blogging I plan to write about meetings, workplace accountability and coaching. If there are any topics you’d like to read about please contact me.
