Why I do sometimes miss the office….

Why I do sometimes miss the office….

In a previous existence, my Monday mornings would follow a similar pattern. Commute – made more bearable because I was fresh from the weekend Walk to the office – grab coffee and maybe a pick me up on the way Arrive! Greeted by hellos and queries of my weekend activities Get into my office, unpack bag and have team in for a quick chat and catch up before we determine the week ahead Refuel with more coffee mid-morning, and on way go and chat to my peers for same catch up Now, my Monday’s look like this…. Meditate, journal and set my intentions Rush the kids out the door to school and maybe bump into some other parents Make my own coffee and start work Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE running  my own business, but this morning strangely, I missed my old routine. And when I pondered on it some more, I realised that in fact, it’s not the routine I miss, it’s that social contact and inquiry into my life. And does all the other great stuff – freedom, flexibility, total control over one’s destiny and a much more stress free life, yet making more money make up for it? I think yes, and I also think how grateful I am for that chance to check in this morning and make sure. How do you feel about your transition – is there anything you miss?      ...

Thrive! TV Tip ~ Feeling lonely? Reach out and connect!

This week’s Thrive! TV Tip speaks to a real issue that I had when I first set up my own business. I was lonely. Yep, in a city of 10 million people, I was feeling very alone, isolated and cut off from the ‘real’ world…i.e. my old work mates and all the social support they gave me. I had to do things I had never done before – join groups of people who I thought I might like and share my values. having worked for a long time in a job, I was an absolute stranger to networking groups. But over time I found my new work mates and started to thrive! I wish you the best on your journey to connect. I would love to know what your experiences have been and what has worked well for you.
