I started this week with a list of 'must do's' dead line for the end of this month. Program development, video re-records, radio show interviews, updates executive email list from my team... all this among st doing the one thing I love most in my business - executive coaching with my amazing leadership, business owner and professionals clients!I looked at the list on Monday morning, looked at the spaces in my schedule this week and you know what I did? - I scrupled executive email list the list up tightly and binned it. 'I'm only going to do what I love this week' I said. So, in the gaps on Monday I finished reading 'The Bond' by Lynne MC Braggart. In the gaps on Tuesday I executive email list started reading my first Marshall Goldsmith book (hmm - me likely!).
Wednesday followed pattern and was rounded executive email list off with an hour's drive south to have supper with an inspiring friend I hadn't seen in nearly a year. On my drive back north through the Fife fields & farmland I just had this massive sense of executive email list gratefulness. The sun was shining on the half-harvested barley fields, I was tapping back into a sense of creativity that's been the catalyst for up-leveling my business on more than one executive email list occasion over the past decade, and my calmness quotient was overflowing because I CAN go AWOL once in a while and everything won't come crashing down around me.
But what if you don't work for yourself and you're executive email list not the boss? What if you're in a corporate role, directing a team, with projects to complete and accountable for meeting targets and the company depends on your results? Is AWOL executive email list an option? It's a tough one to answer. In my 10 years of coaching executives I haven't met a single professional who hasn't at some point considered jumping ship or initiating executive email list an 'extreme career change'. Some, have been on the edge of quitting, are disillusioned, or just down-right exhausted from a no-respite, limited-appreciation corporate culture.
