Yes, I found out the hard way that keeping a blog post up-to-date is not easy. I do apologize for being remiss with my blogging. I realize that I broke the #1 blogging rule i.e. “Don’t start a blog and abandon it”.
It certainly was not my intent to abandon my blog – you know how it is: life, work, summer & IT updates got in the way – even for me, a Registered Clinical Counsellor and Life Coach. Yes, I too have to work at keeping tabs on my work-life balance.
Blogging is more concentrated work than I initially anticipated. Who knew! What a big lesson I learned! I am someone who gets back in the saddle after a fall. In other words I fail forward. I stand back, review what I did – what worked and what did not work and I problem solve toward success.
I am re-organizing my blogging plans so that a blog by me appears on my site once or twice a week at least. Blog consistency has now been actively worked into my schedule.
Just as I help my clients to recalibrate, life for me is about recalibrating every now and then. Life is about taking stock and acknowledging what is working and what is not working in our lives or in aspects of our lives. We must consciously commit to doing certain things differently. It has to really matter for commitment to occur.
My goal is to help my clients get in the driver’s seat of their lives. Life is complex and busy today that it can easily overwhelm us. Many people need coaching today for life management or transition planning.
Writing my own blogs has forced me to look at my work schedule differently. It means to integrate in a comfortable fashion this writing feature into my schedule. It matters to me. My blogs are back and yes I may slip again and break another major blogging rule but back in the saddle I will get, a little faster next time.
