I recently ran a confidence clinic at Stepney Bank Stables specifically for riders who were looking to get even more out of their lessons by being bolder and more adventurous. We had a fun time with great results.Whilst much of my work involves helping clients develop even better more self esteem, it's always a useful experience to go back to basics and remember that much of the work I do relies on a full understanding of simple, straight forward techniques that can have an amazing effect. It got me to thinking - in this age of instant access to an increasing amount of information, how easy is it to feel over whelmed by it all. What we should be reading to keep up to date; which conferences and seminars should we attend; what training should be have? And if we don't, what are we missing out on? Who else will be attending who might benefit and get ahead of us in whatever game? It seems that it really is true that the more we find out, the less we know.
TweetI've noticed that self employed colleagues can suffer the same dilemma. As I don't have endless resources, nor unlimited time available, I have to make a decision about how to simply be me - effectively and effortlessly. One of the most important things is having time and space to think, so I'm very careful to make sure I build this into my day/week/month. Some might see it as a luxury, but I find that, without it, I simply slip behind not just in my work, but in my well being. I'd love to find out what it is that you build into your life to make sure you're being the best version of you.
