The sunshine has shifted to being autumnal. This is strange considering the force behind the full sun of only a few weeks ago. It was almost violent. The light was forceful and demanding your attention, like a solar version of a water cannon. Now it is gentle and pliant, washing around you. It’s as if a silk scarf has been draped over the day. Transparent. You are able to focus through it so it become like a lens, tinting the concrete.
The algae on the river is practically gone now. The water is brown with silt and mud.
What did I do today?
Writing: I updated my website with new header pictures; changed the structure of the categories to account for both fiction and non-fiction post and wrote an update for 30th August.
Training: I reviewed two courses following first delivery in the last week: PowerPoint Introduction and Excel VBA Introduction. I am half way through refining the teaching materials for Excel Advanced.
There are a huge amount of words written on co-creating your reality. Many of them are total guff and, in my opinion, dangerous nonsense that does no good to anyone. I had a penny drop moment the other day. Really having an influence on creating your reality is not some magical, idealistic bucket of wishes, it is something which can actually happen. So what do you need to bring your goals and aspirations into being? Well a realistic plan and a willingness to schedule the intermediate steps really does help you take charge of things.
Welcome to my site. I write fiction – mostly sci-fi stories, work as a trainer as my main paid work and spend a lot of time sorting things out and working out how to do things better. This may be because I appear to be on a quest to discover the best ways of focusing my time and attention. Being interested in so many things I need to get the most out of the limited number of hours in the day and do my best to keep focused and stop just flitting from idea to idea.
This is an ongoing process which I have by no means mastered. Writing this blog is the logical outcome of that struggle.
