Living in a new world – Days at home (28)

Yes, we are back…to school anyway. And no, it is all remote working.

The workload for the kids seem to go down, mine is undefined, and yes things are still slow. With Germany coming out of the lock-down, if slowly, we are all hoping similar will happen here soon too. We might be able to start planning again from in a couple of weeks’ time. Let’s see. Keep your fingers crossed.

In the meantime we continue our daily routine. Exercise, in terms of walks. I am on my path to the 2nd half marathon this month which I want to run (on the treadmill) on my birthday. An 18K warm-up this morning went well, so it’s the rest of ‘The Firm’ on Amazon that I need to finish. Nothing like entertainment during a 2 hour exercise 😉

Below is a Rainbow Sheep. We found it on one of our walks over the weekend.

Life seems peaceful, quiet and bearable atm. Like anyone I speak to, we enjoy too much wine and food. As someone said, we all get out joining the AA and WW. Who knows, keeping fit definitely helps to keep both in check for me.

Enjoy your start to the week.
Stay safe.

Back to School

This week is back to school. If not a lot earlier, most people return to work this week. Particularly in the UK, with people enjoying splendid weather over the bank holiday weekend (just over a week ago), some took the additional week off. Why not.

I have been on it since early August, working on content for my blog, my LinkedIn Videos and launch of my executive and productivity coaching business. I have been lucky to see a trend that companies are interested in mindfulness trainings and how they can create a culture within an organisation that looks after their employees. As I continue with a top end training course later in the year, I started teaching meditation and mindfulness, incorporating emotional intelligence (EQ), working towards productivity. It all seems to come together.

This week is back to school for the kids too. That means childcare is sorted for most of the day, and life returns to some kind of routine. It also means that you see less of your children. Unfortunately, that’s how life is.

Those who follow me closely know that I currently split my time between a part-time job and launching my own business. That is splitting my time between security and flexibility. It is hard work, but I have a great team I am working with at my contract and enjoy both challenges. Best of both worlds really.

Also, this week we are back to my podcasts. On Thursday I launch season 3 of my podcast Stories of Success. It has been so much fun, that after 40 episodes I continue to interview high achievers and personal development people who give us their opinion on success. I have a few really interesting episodes recorded already, so make sure you tune in on any of your favourite outlets (including Spotify!)

As of next week, I am launching my 2nd book, Principles for Success. I will share more info about the book in the forthcoming weeks and give you a taster of what it is all about. It is an exciting journey to write a book and you will find out more on an article I wrote over on LinkedIn.

Despite my busy schedule I still have a couple of coaching slots available for Q4. So don’t hesitate to reach out and let me know if you are interested. Or, if you are part of a business, let me come in and I share my thoughts on how to create a more productive workplace.

Here is to Q4!
