At the beginning of this year (four weeks ago), I promised myself that I would not bring my work home with me (I want to live a balanced life). I did that a lot last year and the year before and the year before that. So far, I haven’t really had a problem abiding by this promise—although there have been some withdrawals. However, yesterday was very difficult for me. You see, this week I have a workshop that I am conducting for a local company, a Servant Leadership Today article that I must complete by Friday, an Annual Report that is due on Friday, and a two-day coaching workshop that I must attend on Thursday and Friday.
All in all I didn’t do any work this weekend except for posting yesterday’s BLOG. It was so hard. I hope I did the right thing. Interestingly enough, by not working, my creativity level did increase as I was able to write down a lot of thoughts and ideas the past two days on how to approach this week.
Next weekend I’ll let you know how this week fared.
