You work too hard just to 'make bills'

You work too hard just to 'make bills'

The tube got diverted last night. I had to get on a packed bus. My shoe broke in the middle of a packed, sweaty bus. I had a very un Carrie Bradshaw moment as I had to change my shoes in the street. Then I remembered what a bugger they were to walk in. I tried to channel Ms J. Alexander however... not sure I styled it out. 
I then to walk into a very fancy hotel and talk to a packed room. My intention was to inspire, motivate, educate and make people feel good. I did that but still my broken flip flop was bugging me. 


Making do and saying I didn't mind used to be my norm. I would be the first there, the last to leave, I would do free work, I would over deliver and undercharge. I wasn't valued and didn't see my own worth (P.S I have figured out you have to see it in yourself before others do). I would say yes instead of no. I would scrimp on the basics and focus on the little details, instead of investing and growth. 


Now I don't just want to make the minimum. To always be just about making do. In the taxi home, I reminded myself that the 'old me' would have got four buses, a walk, two trains and tube home... because I thought taxis were wasteful. Now I switched into growth, I understand the small details I need in order to do what I want to do. 
By getting a taxi I was home in 20 minutes...not an hour and ten, waiting at a cold bus stop. We woke up early and I don't feel exhausted so I can do what I need to do today. I love TFL but also know when I need to get home speedily. 


Ultimately even though I thought the 'minimum' was enough and it was ok to make do, it wasn't. Would love to know your thoughts... First on the list today...buy new shoes. 
Finally it has taken a long time to get to this place. Is this useful? Do you want to know more?
