The last few weeks have been very stressful for me both on the personal and career fronts. After working through the workbook exercise on how I could spend my time according to my values, one of the biggest things that came up for me was getting away from the city and getting outdoors more. I’d been thinking more along the lines of getting away for several days to somewhere far away, but it occurred to me that I could just get on the commuter railroad and go hiking an hour north of the city.

Despite having a ton of work to do I decided to take yesterday off and go hiking, and it was exactly what I needed. There were several things that I had not been able to figure out that suddenly seemed to have simple answers. I have also been (impatiently) waiting to hear back from several people on various work related things and suddenly they all got back to me yesterday and today. I think this needs to become a recurring thing…

As I’ve written before, I’ve been really struggling with my business, a lot of things that seemed promising haven’t worked out and I’ve been feeling a lot of pressure the last few weeks. Today, I met my family for lunch and my fortune cookie said “Many successes will accompany you this year”
maybe the fortune cookie knows something I don’t…
