I woke to a golden morning. Remember, if you are in the northern hemisphere, I am in Australia, so it’s morning here. This is how we do mornings in Queensland. That was about 6:30/7am and since I was up…
I hit the ground running & was online early for a fantastic Webinar with Chris Brogan from Copyblogger.
The 30 second power out was unexpected, thanks goodness for laptop batteries. I work with the power connected, & my iPhone plugged in & charging also. At a moment’s notice I’m good to go. I made a complete page of notes. Thanks Chris.
A Little Later
I had a vacc-attack, breezed through the kitchen, added to today’s To Do List- have you discovered Workflowy (here’s my tip: watch the video before you start creating)
Later today I will be completing the 4 Excel tests I need to have done before class tomorrow. It’s a whole lot easier than I expected. I discovered when I let go of the associated fears the windows fell open. Or my mind cleared…..insert own metaphor here. When I was about 7ish my dad used to get really cross, angry & generally frustrated with me as I struggled to learn my ‘times tables’. Now, there are 2 things important to know: 1st my father read physics books for relaxation so I was up against it from the get go; 2nd I loved my father all my life as well as now, even though he isn’t here with me. We didn’t always agree, but we were father & daughter & we loved each other in our own ways.
How I changed
After some thought I decided I could let GO of the fear of all things numerical. After all those struggles were from decades ago. So I did. And I have. And now Excel is do-able for me. Yes it sounds simple doesn’t it. But that is how it works for me. A whole lot of thought, then a decision. Then action, or inaction as the case may be. Not fair I hear you cry…sorry for me it is that way. Figure out how it is for you. Don’t deny me this one easy, for I am confident in telling you that the list of things easy to you, is way longer than mine.
I will be collecting some homemade marmalade. Buying some Milo & doing my usual getting ready for 2 days of class things. This is week 3.
What are you doing today?
