CEO’s Editorial – 20th September 2019
I don’t know about you, but I find it really hard to switch off and grab some real downtime.
When I do, you’ll find me hiding in a cosy corner or in the shade of a tree, completely lost in a book. My 16 year old marvels at my ability to consume a whole book in one sitting.
I’ve found a new favourite author, Phaedra Patrick
and have already absorbed two of her three books. The star characters in both books have a couple of things in common. They are on their own following the loss of family members and they end up embarking on accidental adventures where they learn more about their lost loved ones and in the process, themselves.
At the end of each book I marvelled at Arthur and Martha’s bravery and tenacity. Pushing on with their journeys, despite incredible challenges. Forcing themselves into the unknown and being richly rewarded through becoming stronger and happier people as a result.
Although works of fiction, the stories are a lesson for us all in how enriched our lives can become if we take a deep breath, close our eyes and take a step outside of our comfort zone.
In the words of Roald Dahl (Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator):
‘You’ll never get anywhere if you go about ‘what if-ing like that’.
Why not take some time to reflect on something you’ve been ‘what if-ing’ about and decide how and when you might take that first step out of your comfort zone and into the zone of possibility.
