A crazy start to the year!


Posted on 12th January 2013 by Tony in Free Tip |Thoughts



So this is my first week back to the office after a 3-week break. Not exactly a “break” but go-slow from the usual panic stations and craziness. Which has made me a feel a little like a deer caught in the headlights of an oncoming truck! Action Stations! Action Stations! Set Condition One Throughout the Ship!

So besides sharing a house with two Mexicans, a Scot and a Pitbull I was joined by Eden and Daniel who returned to work on Monday. And we jumped straight into it.

I have to admit I was pretty bleak when the week started. Short months are always really bad for the budget and the nature of my business has become far more day-to-day than retainer-based, so I’m always watching the numbers. Let me be honest: I was in a blind panic.

It took a talking-down from a good friend to make me take a moment – to sit down and look at things objectively – and then realise that I am in control of my emotions and I have to proactively decide how to respond to the situation. I made a strategic decision, put my focus into it and then watched the numbers.

And they did exactly as predicted – they climbed (this is a good thing).

Lesson Learnt: Panic helps nothing. Take a deep breath. Think of a strategy and move forward.
