For the last few weeks, I feel I've had no time for working on my business; a thing that I've found most frustrating when my energy has been very present and willing. However the cause of this lack of time was that I've been organising the costumes for a local amateur theatre production. I've loved it, and I feel that my life benefits from interests outside of my holistic work, but I was very concerned with how much time it was taking and this was after I'd delegated some of the work to my wonderful team of helpers. I've been feeling torn. I basically abandoned my work for the duration apart from seeing scheduled clients, but I haven't been that happy with this. So I've been looking at what I can learn from the experience. Firstly, I've learnt that I can manage a project and achieve a result within a fixed time frame. Secondly I've learnt that I can manage people and they've seemed to be quite happy with how I've done it. Thirdly, I've learnt that I'm not good at focusing on more than one thing at a time, when the things require creative energy. And fourthly, I've learnt that I can work quite hard and long without getting stressed - something that didn't used to be the case. I joked to one of my helpers that my goal was to complete the costumes without having a nervous breakdown, but I surpassed this by keeping calm right up to the end and it made the whole process a lot more enjoyable and easier to achieve. We waste a lot of energy being agitated about things we can't change and although we often feel totally entitled to be stressed, it doesn't help us achieve our goals. So now, the show is over, I've refocused back on my work and the very day I got a new client booking. A sure sign that when one door closes and other one opens.
