Sometimes, the stars just seem to be conspiring against you.
As most of you know, I usually put forth the extra effort to plan my schedule and outline goals. I have my days organized and planned to help me move forward and build my business. But there are some things you just can’t plan for.
I had the two weeks leading up to our "Gain the Edge in Today’s Art Market" workshop wide open. I didn’t accept new clients and seemed to sail through to the big event. Seemed so easy. I even took a couple of half-days to go hiking. Tell me, when, in the great scheme of the universe, that happens?!
Then came the crash. I got the POST-Workshop blues. Monday morning I awoke to mounds of paperwork and orders that needed to be processed, booked, and all of the other stuff that goes with that. Bills had to be paid. Thank-you notes written. And I couldn’t seem to get enough sleep.
Long story short: It took all week! But I was determined to face the ugly truth and put it behind me. I know that when I neglect things that I don’t want to do, they only get bigger and scarier.
I’m happy to say that I’m 99% complete with the follow-up for our workshop. And I no longer dread coming into the office. In fact, I’m more excited than ever. Like Brian Tracy advocates, "Eat That Frog!" It’s the only way to reach your goals.
