Summery of the month -
So… this is month 1 of my reports. Kinda scared of doing them. Already I feel like I’m not doing enough, which has given me a motivation boost to book more things in… so it can’t be all bad. It’s nice to look back on what I am doing and see the “wood from the trees”. I think we can just watch time and projects fly by sometimes. Spending a minute reflecting is good and gives me a sense of pride.
I was away for about half the month in Hawaii on holiday so that impacted stuff. Also I took time off gigging / podcast to finish my book. This feels like I’m making an excuse for not gigging enough but it’s sadly all I’ve got.
