Day 7: Sunday!

I try very hard not to work on a Sunday. I’m usually able to achieve it but sometimes needs must, and today I decided to go an all-day event for Women in Business.

There was a line-up of speakers on personal development issues ranging from making a change to sorting out your thinking, to ensuring you had the right mindset. There was also someone who talked about networking effectively and another who gave us a broad idea of how to increase organic reach on your Facebook Business page and this was all in the first 2 or so hours.

In the end I decided to come home. Not because the event wasn’t good, but because a lot of what was said I have heard before. This is not to knock the speakers, a couple of them were really good but, like I said I have heard more or less everything they have said before – I’ve even said some of it myself. As I sat there it struck me that if I’ve decided to make today a work day, I should come home and get ahead of myself (with this post, for instance) as I’m out all day tomorrow doing something that’s important but isn’t work related. Furthermore, I know I have a couple more days like that, days where I have to attend to, the ‘important but not work related later on this week.

  So I came home.                                    

And here I am.

 

Like I said I try hard not to work on a Sunday and it’s usually the exception, made easier because I go to church on Sunday mornings. But sometimes you have to do what you have to do. I attended the event and got something out of it. I’m going to the workshop on Facebook in a couple of weeks’ time and I was reminded of what I know. If I wasn’t out of commission tomorrow I may well have stayed for the whole day for the networking, but my need to get some things done overrode my FOMO (‘fear of missing out’ for we midlifers).

 

So I came home.

 

And here I am.

 

Sunday.
