I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Last week was quite a challenging one. It started off fairly well, but as far as staying on top of things it ended in a muddled heap. Those of you who follow me on Twitter would have seen my updates about our power failure which started on Tuesday. The power came on again for a few brief hours, but after that it stayed off for days despite help from the Corporation. To make a very long story short - it turned out that there was an electrical fault in our home. It was so frustrating. Luckily, on Saturday it finally got fixed and we were back in business. What did I learn from last week? Appreciate electricity when you have it! Onward and upward for this week. Today's post picture also had to be snapped with my iPad as my camera is flat as expected! Okay... time to get organised.
The Working Week:
Catching-up is the name of the game this week. Most of last week's goals were not reached as I was too busy doing damage control and speaking on the phone to get the problem sorted out. I am still working on a few blogs and I have several consulting sessions booked this week. I can't wait to meet a bunch of new creatives and hear more about their challenges. I have also worked on some new themed blog posts which will be great to share with you. This week I need to do the final date planning for the next set of workshops.
Things I'm excited about this week:
My office clean-out is very close to being finished! It has taken a ridiculous amount of time, but secretly I enjoyed it! Everything is organised to the max (and labelled of course). Our Creative Coffee Council is also meeting this week and I'm excited to catch up with the ladies as I haven't seen them in months. Lastly, I'm in the process of organising a fun thrift sale - watch this space.
What will challenge me this week?
Staying focused and working systematically through my to do list in order to keep stress at bay. Last week's challenges taught me that I can't be in control 24/7, but I can adapt my outlook.
In last week's Meet Free Monday post I mentioned my Typo planner - I caved and started using it. So far I'm loving it! I'm still working on my personal goals and I need to focus on exercise this and including it in my list of priorities.
How is your week looking?
P.S.: I'm still working on what to share in these posts. Let me know if there are specific things / details you would like to know more about.
