It’s been a tough week for me since when I wrote to you last. Not bad, just challenging. Mainly because, as I mentioned last week, I’ve been stepping out courageously to meet some challenges worth meeting.
Like, for starters, I held my first ever free call which scared the shit out of me for unknown reasons given that I’m used to teaching, and I coach people by phone all the time and one would think that this combo of the two would be no big deal, but for me it was.
The call was for stressed college students who want to finish strong this semester. And because if you’re reading this you all are in my tribe already, I’ll send you the recording if you request it, even if you weren’t on the call. It’s chock full of the strategies I’ve found effective for me and my clients in managing stress and meeting the challenges of the end of the semester. Just shoot me an email at email@example.com if you want it.
I’ve also done 2 days of interviews for a big, complicated job. I’ll tell you more about it if it happens, but just the interviews were challenging in terms of time and emotion—fun and exciting in many ways, but challenging for sure. In fact, just considering doing this big job while growing my business and expanding my writing requires courage for me – and calming down my inner, “Are you crazy? this is too much!” voice.
And maybe it is crazy. But maybe it isn’t. Because you see, this week, so far, I’m doing it. And so far, all I’ve had to do it this week. Not next week, not even tomorrow.
