“How we spend our days is of course how we spend our lives.” Annie Dillard
I found this very interesting quote and it made me start to think about how I spend my days. When I first started my own company in 2000 I didn’t really know where it was going to take me. I was aware that I didn’t want to be tied down to working Monday to Friday 9am-5pm, but I didn’t really know what I want to do either.
The year 2000 saw me stay in the IT professional world and work through agencies rather than as an employee of a company. Over the next year or so I found a new career – it wasn’t the first change in my working life, so it didn’t worry me that I was going to return to studying and ‘start again’. This was a career in coaching. It was an interesting transition from working by the day for a client to working by the hour with a coaching client … and it took me some time to really understand the change I had made to my working life. Once I did, I realised it was all for the better.
As you’ll know from this blog that I’ve also now moved my home and working environments away from the UK to the island of Madeira (Portugal) and when I saw this quote this morning I realised that over the last 10 years I’ve gradually been moving to understand how I spend my days; and today I realised that this is now how I am spending each moment of my life. What would have happened in my life if I had realised this in 2000 and started the realisation and change of how I spend my time with a more conscious approach, rather than the unconscious approach I seem to have taken.
Now that I’ve had this realisation I know that there are things that I need to put into place to really know how I am spending my days, and once I’ve done this then I know I’ll be spending my life in the way I select to.
