grateful for the vision

Like most, I’ve had plenty of time recently to reflect on lessons of the past twelve months. More importantly, I’ve realised I’m in a very fortunate situation, a new (better) year is ahead of me, I have some great people in my circle and a vision to take me forward. I’m grateful.

One of my first tasks during the holiday was to clear that path that takes me forward. I’ve been making a concerted effort to remove some of those ‘unseen’ obstructions that seem to hinder any kind of progress.

The time thieves.

I started with email and I must be honest, logging on after a few days felt a chore. The inbox was carrying assorted offers, most of it promising my exclusive part of the brave new world, there were exclusive ‘deals’ if I order now plus of course the ubiquitous offer of help with my SEO – from several different ‘connections’ representing the same company!

Time for a clear-out.

The process started out as a tedious distraction ‘though soon became a kind of rewarding therapy … spending the best part of the day ‘unsubscribing’ and severing links with any kind of new year distraction. I followed up on the ‘valid stuff’ and prioritised the written ‘to do’ list for January (yes, I still keep a list!) I’m keeping in touch with my connections of course and all the while I’m making the mental note to answer those holiday cards …

‘Social’ media is another story.

The routine is just that now. Each new season, at the start of ‘every quarter’ I find I learn a lot from my aforementioned clear-out. I’m giving myself space, clearing the path to visualise the route, qualifying what I need to do if I am to go further in pursuit of my goals. 

By sticking to a modicum of routine I’m creating the freedom required to see the future.

By following-up, I’m also making myself referrable by being seen as a reliable business connection.

‘people buy from people’

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 ten years I've been away from the 'big smoke' and I consider the decision to relocate my business to the country has been the best move of my career. I write and have a lifetime of experience in publishing and personal development, I consider myself a specialist in helping my clients with memoirs - that could be a biography, or simply bringing a diary 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 any Wednesday midday or Thursday 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
