I’ve always been a big believer in Malcolm X’s quote
Tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.
Hell we grew up with a huge painting on the wall and my mum raised me on that saying, so at the beginning of each year write a plan for my year. Not new year’s resolutions but a plan for my year. I normally do this on new year’s day but being the obsessive that I am I obviously had planned out my plan before the New Year. Just after Christmas the hospital called me pushing an operation I had to the 31st December. No biggie I thought.
To cut a long story short I had the operation, which didn’t go well, and turned into an infection, which spread to my ear, and I’m only now just somewhat recovered. Which is great… except my amazing plan has gone to pots! I’m 13 days into January and what was meant to be a year that began with a bang has started off with a hiss and fizzle. Urggghhhh.
Amongst my friends, I’m known as Murphy from Murphy’s Law (known more colloquially as s*d’s law). Whatever can go wrong will. I called my business partner to fill her in on my 2015 drama and one of the first things she said preemptively said is.
Ok well as soon as you get better you can start your plan. It doesn’t have to start at 1.00am on the 1st January. You can just shift things along a few weeks.
One of the great things about my business partner being my best friend is she knows me too well. The side effect is I’m no longer sad about being ill. I’m ready to get better to get my plan in action. Bring on 2015 – it’s going to be a corker!
