Accepting Reality

Posted 02.12.2014

Every so often, one has to face reality and accept the circumstances as they are. This is one of those moments for me.

I’m very excited about the work I’m doing on my next book which will be published by Wiley this Fall. And, in the category of accepting reality, I’ve come to the conclusion today that I’ll be blogging less frequently until I deliver the manuscript to my editor in May.

Since the book is all about simple and practical things leaders can do to be more mindful in their work and life, I’ll still be posting the Mindful Mondays feature most weeks between now and May. I’ll likely be posting on other days of the week as well but not as often as I have been.

Wow, I feel better already. It’s important to me (and I hope to you) that when I post on this blog it’s worth your time and attention. In accepting reality, I realize that there’s only so much writing I can do in a week while meeting the needs of my clients, writing a quality manuscript and doing a good job with this blog.

So, something has to give and, for the next couple of months, I’ll be focusing on quality over quantity or frequency when it comes to this blog. Thanks for being a loyal reader. I’ll still be here over the next two or three months, just not as often. Please hang in there with me during this hybrid hiatus.

In wrapping up for today, I’m reminded of a line I heard somewhere – you can do everything, just not everything at once. Who knows? Maybe there’s an area in your work or life where you need to take your foot off the gas for awhile. It’s worth thinking about.
