When is it good not to think?


Hi everyone

I have so much to tell you.

I am back from my trip to the Success Seminar in London. While I was up there, I also visited London Zoo, I saw the film Anomaly and I went to the Digital Revolution Exhibition, that blew my mind.

On the day I came back, I had 4 hours sleep, then taught the Introduction to blogging course. I took so many photos and that much video footage of the Digital Revolution Exhibition, that my phone stopped working and I couldn’t call or do anything with my phone, until I got it fixed in the EE shop after teaching on Monday 7th.

On Tuesday 8th, I had an admin day. I also cleaned, tidied and cleared out some bottles of stuff from underneath my kitchen sink.

I have been working in my day job every day since, and trying to catch up with social media, emails and blogging.

As you know, I am a deep thinker and my brain never stops thinking. Sometimes it’s good not to think. I have so much to do that if I sat down and did the sensible thing of writing everything down that I have to, it would overwhelm me. Yes, I make written lists of things to do and set myself tasks and goals each day, but if I become too rigid and ‘work-like’ with everything I have to do, it doesn’t feel good. Instead of enjoying what I do, the opposite happens and I become unproductive. Yes, I have an overview of what must be done, but I have to do it the quirky way. If I schedule too much, it becomes a chore and that shows. Does that happen to you?

Things I need to do:

  • I have to create a new website for http://www.beatredundancyblues.com as my web host no longer services RV Sitebuilder that I used to build it. I have been unable to access my admin panel for at least a couple of months and now I can get into it, I can’t make any amendments due to constant Java script errors. This site is currently more popular than my http:// http://www.beatredundancyblues.co.uk site that is built using WordPress. I have no choice but to change it.
  • After making a few amendments to my Break through the barriers of redundancy book, I need to re-index and paginate it, within the interior CreateSpace template.
  • After being asked by businesses about training staff in blogging, I thought it best to set up a website to build a professional brand for my blog training. I have bought the domain name http://www.BlogTrainer.co.uk and have yet to build the site. I have a new @blogtrainerUK Twitter account and now need to grow my followers. Thanks to those of you who have already joined me on that account.

I haven’t forgotten that I still have blog awards to officially accept in future posts. Thanks to all of you who have given me awards. I very much appreciate them.

I managed to track down my English teacher from college. She edits manuscripts. I sent her a copy of my Break through the barriers of redundancy book manuscript so she could give it a quick scan. Her feedback was encouraging. She said it’s interesting, well thought out and there are not many books like it on the market. I was thrilled with those comments. As she is very critical, I know it must be a good book.

Because my Break through the barriers of redundancy book advertises my http://www.beatredundancyblues.com site on the front cover, updating that site, must be a priority.

I have to not think too much and just get on with it.

When would not thinking, be good for you?

Write when I can

  1. Wow, pretty epic week, Ifelt exhausted just reading it, in a good way that is. It’s good that you have found yourself a quiet niche in the book market…here’s to a shed load of sales!

    1. Hi Ste, thanks so much. Thanks for sticking with me when I haven’t been able to comment or like much recently. Everything is happening at once at the moment. Although I teach for only a few weeks a year, I am a tutor all year round. I have emails to answer every week, meetings to go to, telephone conversations to have. I have to create a new http://www.beatredundancyblues.com site and I am currently trying to copy and paste each page into a word document to transfer to a new site. As well as do everything else.

      2. Hi Ste, thanks. I post a lot of posts on my breaks in my day job from my phone because of a lack of time. I also have to post to my FB and Twitter during my breaks. I don’t get long and my phone doesn’t always allow me to Like other people’s posts, it’s annoying. I will announce when I have a new http://www.beatredundancyblues.com site. I managed to copy and paste 15 parts of the site yesterday into Word, so I can transfer those to the new site. I have 15 more pages to copy and paste and I usually have to do some reformatting, due to the current site template. When I have everything, that site will be no longer in its current form, but a brand new WordPress site. There will be a short period while it’s under construction. I will also do the http://wwwblogtrainer.co.uk site after that, which currently is not built.
