Just a little breathless?

Know how you feel. I must admit, I’ve found the month of January to be challenging. It seems the whole world and it’s partner have shot ‘out of the blocks’ with both barrels blazing, proclamations of help for this, offers of this new product a new system and encouragement for participation in everything else – that everyone else is engaging because it’s just about the best thing since the ‘sliced bread’ invention …

When was that by the way?

1928 I’m told, a fellow named Otto Rohwedder from Iowa, USA.

Wow, been a while since the next best thing then? Don’t tell Apple.

The current state of our world hardly encourages us to settle, not for a minute can we sit still. Our best intentions to focus on the top of the ‘to do’ list and follow the plan are often blown out of the water with the demands from incumbent technology, be it via mobile, email, the web – not to mention the good old landline and of course the sanctity of our favourite networking bolt-hole.

In the face of all this it’s no wonder we find ourselves a little breathless, bewildered and somewhat resistant to change.

It’s a challenge, right? Now being the kind of guy that doesn’t like to ever overlook such a thing I’ve decided to change my own mindset and embrace this information overload.

I’m creating some comfort, some space by connecting a lot more – I’ve decided to understand and really accept that to make it easier for me – no one else – I’m embracing change. I’ve decided to face up to the January challenge and no longer protect my own immediate domain against the education that comes with acceptance and a willingness to listen a whole lot more.

I am no longer stuck with the feeling of ‘need to do’ I have found I have a sense of new found freedom because I accept that this is now the mind-set for now – not for all time, but for now. I am learning to embrace a wider offering and feeling a lot more comfortable with where I ‘fit’ as I cultivate a much better quality of life.

Put simply, my decision was a choice. Each of us has choices. We can find ourselves at the mercy of a world that appears threatening or we can be open to the remarkable possibilities available. I’ve chosen to accept this new Spring and not beat myself up about change. I’m on a voyage of acceptance and the bonus of learning and I’d like to thank the world I inhabit for the opportunity for development I have now chosen to embrace.

What’s your choice?

I love the coast and in particular, the area in which I live, the North East of England. It's an uncomplicated life, for the past twelve years I've been away from the 'big smoke' ... and the decision to relocate my business to the North has been the best move of my career. So far. I am a writer and have a lifetime of experience in publishing and personal development. I now consider myself a specialist in helping my clients with memoirs - that could entail a biography, or simply bringing diary pages to life. I tend not to advertise my business, word of mouth has always been kind so it's no surprise that I do spend a couple of days per week networking. Peer collaboration can be very rewarding. Therefore, if you'd like to join me fortnightly for Wednesday ZOOM or either Tuesday or Thursday for (in-person) morning coffee, please get in touch. I'd love to meet you and perhaps help in any way possible. Thank you for stopping by the website. engage, develop, grow ... with Go! charliekenny@live.co.uk
