I’ve been super productive today. I’ve mailed out press releases, fixed up meetings for the forthcoming industry event, had my nails done (v important), fed the kids, walked the dog, done a stretch class… It’s a loooooong list. I put my energy surge down to the fact that I spent the last three days lazing about.
The industry event this week HAS to go well. It will go well. I will meet the right people as if by magic – although I have done the ground work and put in lots of requests. I will also have a great time and wonderful opportunities will appear before my eyes.
I last went to this annual event 20 years ago. It will no doubt have changed a lot in that time, as have I. I won’t be staying out until the early hours hoping to cop off with comedians like I used to, but I will be making the most of every gathering and forging connections wherever I can. I am braver than I was back then. I won’t be shy about approaching people no matter how ‘important’ they are plus I’ve had a lot of practice at honing my networking skills.
I will also make sure there is a bit of time for selfish pleasure seeking too. All work and no play makes for a dull badass and besides, all the best creative ideas happen when you’re enjoying yourself.
I’m exhausted now. Time for bed.
Everything is going according to my plan
