Checking In - Put People FIRST!
Tomorrow I fly out to Nova Scotia where I've been asked to speak at the 2018 Health Summit on Health Coaching. I had to cram my already busy life into an even shorter work week. In the midst of this I had a call from a reader. Now, I'm not big on the phone at the best of times and I avoid it like the plague at others. This reader had called before a couple times and wanted my free newsletter, which is mentioned on a TV show I did many years ago. As In no longer do mail outs of my newsletter but rather use only the e-version (sign up at the top right of this page), I found myself reluctant to call back. I did try a couple times and when it didn't go through crossed it off my list of To Do's.
Well, they called again yesterday and this time when I called back I got through and it was a blessing to both of us. We talked about nutrition, extremes, stress, and enjoying our food while trying to eat as healthy as probably, not necessarily possible. I would have missed out on this blessing had I listened to my feelings. I didn't feel like it. I was so busy getting an assignment finished, packing for the tripo, finishing handouts for the seminar, and I needed to pick my apples in the orchard! But I wouldn't take back that 45 minutes now. I still got everything I needed done and a blessing of touching someone else's life.
Don't miss out on the blessings of relationships and people because of tasks. Task's can usually wait, people matter NOW!
