I’ve figured it out

I know why I’m finding this blog so difficult to get started. It’s not my area of expertise – yet. Perhaps, I’ll hold off on posting until there is something worthy of posting. Action, in other words.


Why am I awake at 3.00 in the morning?

Stress? Too much to do and not enough time to do it in, so yes.
Fear of failure? Definitely.
Fear of ridicule? Perhaps.
Fear of the unknown? Possible.
Fear of disappointment? I place quite high expectations on myself, and presume that others have the same expectations of me, so yes. Definitely.
A loud noise? Not this time, although some nights it’s an issue.
Nerves? Yes. Today we interview a possible successor for me, and I’m never comfortable in an interview situation.

All I really know at this point is that I’ve spent the last three hours tossing and turning. Failing to get back to sleep. Not succeeding in calming the turmoil in my stomach. Not even the constant rainfall has lulled me back to sleep. Usually guaranteed to get me drowsy in a few short minutes.

So while I’m awake in the dead of night, I can check the mailbox. Apart from a couple of newsletters, empty of anything substantial. Now I’m posting a mobile blog, just to get the practice!
Next step is to cancel the alarm, push the covers back and hit the deck.

Have a great Wednesday!

In the beginning there was an idea…

… and then the idea grew a little more, and then I said that idea out loud. Once you do that, there is no going back!

This blog will be about my journey from ‘working for the man’ to ‘working for myself’.

It’s been a long 18 months since I first told all my friends and family that I was leaving Foreship to go and do my own thing. The end is in sight, even if some parts of the puzzle are still falling into place.

Stay tuned!
