I’m in sales for a publicly traded company so the end of the quarter is always a tough time for me.
It’s not that I’m that much busier per se but we invest so much energy and focus into hitting a quarterly number that I get home drained, exhausted and wanting to crawl under a rock.
Our company usually does really nice things for us this time of year, in the form of meals, snacks, fun activities and other pick-me-ups that result in my pigging out and eating nothing but junk for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Can you say constipation?
To add insult to injury I have to fly to Chicago for business tomorrow and spend the night there. We have a big client meeting on Thursday and I’ll come back grumpy and exhausted straight into a day full of INTERNAL meetings on Friday.
So no yoga between today and Friday, but I will likely bring my workout clothes and go running at the hotel gym tomorrow night.
Given all this I am utterly uninspired but felt like reaching out into the ether to see if anyone reached back.
Oh, the only fun thing to report is that I started writing that book I keep talking about! Granted, I’m not doing it in my cabin next to the ocean, but I’ve managed to fill six 8.5 x 11 pages (single spaced) with my nonsense – and there’s plenty more to come!
The heroine is a spunky but slightly awkward banking executive living alone in NYC, who discovers often times our most difficult relationships have the power to inspire us the most.
What do you think? Would you read it??
