Who is on your side? | Three kinds of support you need to perform and stay well

In this week’s video video I build on last week’s theme of asking for help and give you three critical elements you need in your support network. 

The motivation for sharing this video and last week’s, was a rather challenging month for me. March was packed with both work and life challenges and in the midst of it the old temptations for me to close down and isolate came back. 

As I wrestled with a large project with some steep learning curves, I found myself so tempted to shut the world out and ‘focus.’  However, past experience has shown me that that is not only inefficient but not good for me. 

So, I followed this advice and used my moral support a fair bit (Lesley and my business support group), tactical ( contact with my network and a marketing support group) and truth teller (Lesley! and myself in particular!).  All in all, it resulted in a bumpy but successful conclusion to March and I came through in better shape than I would have done.  The support was the critical factor.

I hope you found this video and these tips valuable - let me know your thoughts by hitting reply. 

More next week.
