I’ve been writing my first ezine of the year this morning and reflecting on the changes I have made to my work schedule that will reduce the amount of business travel I suffer, the number of hotel rooms I have to stay in and allow me to spend more time on public transport and less driving my car. The road warrior lifestyle really took over in the last 5 years and has had negative effects in all areas of my personal and professional life. It all sounds very glamorous at the start – first or business class travel, upgraded hotel rooms, exotic or exciting locations. On reflection – it was exciting for about 2 years and then the thrill rapidly wore off. I’m now more interested in creating a very comfortable and inspiring work space – and travelling periodically in order to deliver the workshops that I love to deliver and to deepen my understanding of my client’s real issues.
