It’s a Hard Life

I’m in beautiful Branston-Upon-Trent in Staffordshire this morning, having just returned from a walk alongside the River Trent after a full cooked breakfast in the lovely Riverside Hotel.

Yesterday afternoon was spent in the hotel Conference Room in the company of fellow Business Owners at a short seminar on Goal Setting. It was followed by what can only be described as a ridiculously overstocked buffet (the Cheesecake was especially good…) and an opportunity to network, where I met a number of interesting people and potential working partners. I then spent the evening enjoying the company of some peers and people I consider mentors, bouncing ideas and discussion back and forth.

The event and time spent away from the office was very worthwhile, helping me to gain some focus on goals in different areas of my life and take some time to consider how to achieve them in 2008. It can be all too easy to just jump into office grind again at the start of a New Year, and is always potentially difficult to "make" the time to do some strategic thinking – especially if you are a personality like myself who likes to "get on and do it"!

As I enjoy a cup of tea in my hotel room overlooking the River Trent, memories of last nights sumptuous cheese-cake still present, I have to remind myself that life as an SMB IT Consultant isn’t always easy. 😉
