As I write this I am thinking of the twelve other things I need to get done for this weekend’s Sleuthfest event in Sarasota. Eventhough I am a head of schedule and my rock star team has been super helpful I still worry about being the best me and sharing what I can on Saturday. It wasn’t until just now that I was reminded of something that really helps me achieve my goals and that is balance… I know… I know… you are thinking everyone says that, but really I know if I take the time out to have a goal that is non-career related or for you non-book related. I am happier, more efficient and relaxed when it comes time to get down and get’er done (excuse my country roots seeping out there). So my tip to you today is to try and make a goal that is just for you and non-book related. See what happens and make sure to share your results!
