“Thanks. I know I need some help, but I’m too stressed, too busy to change. I’ll get back to you when I’ve got more time.”

I had this said to me by someone a few days ago, when I explained how they’d need to take just some time out from their already hectic work schedule, so they could begin to make the changes they’d already told me they wanted to make.

“So you’re too busy to change … but you’ve already said you feel like you’re being pulled in too many directions, firefighting problems, balancing health issues & missing key deliverables, yes?”

“Do you think you might be part of the problem?

“Just a little bit, perhaps?”

 

too much stress to change

And then they, sat back, let that thought sink in, & began to realise that just like how a fish can’t actually ‘see’ the water they’re swimming in, even though it’s all around them, she wasn’t able to see what she was swimming around in either.

And when she did the word she used was a little bit more profane than “water”, that’s for sure!

Have you ever found yourself swimming in the poop of life, trying your best to make progress but feeling like the current’s pulling you backwards, because if you have, then it’s about time we arranged a time to speak.

If you’d like to find out more about taking back control of your life & get some fun back again, get in touch & let me know little more about what’s on your mind.
