Day 1554 - Back to "work"

It's time to get reacquainted with my desk


Who else has to go back to work today? We got home from the coast last night in readiness for Derek to head to the office and for me to head to my desk.  I don't have to go as far as he does.  His is a 15 minute drive complete with suit, lunch box, security passes and laptop.  Mine is a 15 second walk with my towel on my head, bare feet, cup of tea and bowl of porridge.  However we get there, whatever we wear, however long it takes ... it's the same result ... "hi ho, hi ho, it's off to work we go".



Derek's day will probably involve big fancy meetings, developing customer relationships, following up on leads, writing reports and/or proposals and entering data into his reporting system.   Mine needs to start with some filing, financial reporting for my BAS, writing an article for a US magazine, drafting a letter. organising a meeting with my US agent, follow up to over 200 emails (of which I suspect two thirds will be spam) and, most importantly, creating a strategic plan for 2014.

Shit. For the first time in years I have walked into 2014 without a clear sense of what needs to be done.  I mean, I know what needs to be done today ... I just don't have a strategy yet for the year. I am sitting here without a great sense of vision, purpose or clarity.  This is not good for me.  I am the person who always has vision.  I always have purpose.  Even in the midst of fibromyalgia fog I can conjur up something that somewhat resembles clarity.

Not this year.  Not yet.

Given my word for the year is SOLUTION I guess I'd better do something about it.

No problems, only solutions.

Vision, purpose and clarity ... here I come.

If only I could find a pen ....
