Life happens sometimes!
At the end of last year my eldest daughter got ill and had to go into hospital for a few days
So, I did what any mum would do. I dropped everything, completely cleared my diary and focused on her and being a mum, because this is actually the reason I resigned from my corporate life back in 2010…and it’s something I have never ever lost sight of.
I’m a mum first!
I know how real the juggle is!!
My diary was full to the brim on this particular week as I was trying to clear things off before the holidays…so there was a lot of emails saying we had to push back to the New Year and it reminded me of something that I fiercely protect.
I learnt this skill from my corporate life and from working with hundreds of CEO’s, Managing Directors and Senior Leaders…
SPACE IS QUEEN!!!
When you consciously protect space in your diary, you can nudge things around if you need to without frantically searching for a day or even an hour to have that call that you needed to re-arrange.
And when you cultivate space, you have time to think, reflect, or even take the afternoon off for a cheeky coffee and cake date with your best friend that you haven’t seen in ages.
So, take a glance at your diary and add in some space.
Add in the school holidays or just normal holidays
Add in dates with your other half (even if they end up being dates with yourself ?)
Add in thinking and planning and strategy days
And add in just the odd day here and there for unexpected fun.
Creating space is magic!!
