Have you ever noticed when one thing goes wrong, it has a knock on effect?

I’ve spent the last week trying to work out why everything seems to be pushing on one another.  And I had the epiphany about three hours ago that the problem is I’m trying to do too much.

It’s my own fault.  I get enthusiastic about an idea and dive in with both feet.  But the stupid thing is, if I’m not careful, I end up in a situation where I’ve got too much on my plate and can’t keep up.

Case in point.  I have 25 posts all queued up and under ‘pending review’ on my blog docket.  I didn’t think for one minute to change the settings that allowed them to post direct to live when doing it from my phone so for the last 25 days I’ve been happily posting my blogs, and it’s only now that I’ve discovered that my one a day isn’t showing up!
The next part in the chain, getting it in my email so I can post it, hasn’t been happening either, but because I’m so busy I haven’t noticed.
Well, today, I’m putting it right.  There should be 15 historical posts and another 10 queued for the next month, and that’s it resolved.
Bear with me 🙂

Working hard, playing less #Mondayblogs

Things have dramatically changed for me here in the last four weeks. As a bit of a recap, I thought I'd share why.In June, I decided that I didn't want to keep going the way I was, and, as people kept asking, I was going to launch a coaching project. And while there...

Rebooting… #Mondayblogs #rungirlrun

I kinda feel like I'm watching a flashing cursor sometimes right now. As I said in my last post though, Tempus is talking about giving me space to do something to make me happy. And honestly? it's been a bit of a shock. And a bit of a weird thing to start organizing....

New stuff…a new design, backlist announcements and more! #mondayblogs

Firstly, I've redesigned my blog. I'd love to hear what people think of it, and if you'd like to see anything.I'll be connecting up more of my blogs as time goes on, but for the time being, and I'd love it if you sign up to my newsletter. I'm also delighted to...
