So, after my last very optimistic post I found out how quickly margin can disappear: Emotional, physical, time, and money all in the space of about a week. Wiped out. It only takes a couple of unexpected events, plus some bad timing, a few sleepless nights, and suddenly BAM, you're back to square one. If that.
But I'm not giving up. If anything I am doubling down on creating margin in the areas where I have control. I have finished the book and--thank goodness--found some things that I am doing right already among the many things that I need to improve.
And I realize that if I hadn't already been working on creating margin, the couple of horrible weeks that I had could have been worse.
I have some steps that I am going to be taking to create more margin. More about that as I solidify plans.
