Sometimes things happen in your life that shock you or take you by surprise, and you find yourself unable to write, or focus on your work. This could be something positive, such as an unexpected gift, or it could be something negative such as the death of a loved one. What do you do?
Roll With The Punches
When you’re faced with the unexpected, it’s better to roll with the punches than try to force yourself to sit down and write, or make that call to Mr. Bigwig at XYZ, or get your latest product online. Sometimes, you just need to take a break. Sometimes, your brain freezes up and you can’t think about anything else. That’s when you need to take care of you.
The Positive And Negative
If it’s a positive thing that has happened, go out and celebrate, or call your friends and share the good news. This will help you get that burst of energy and excitement out of your system so that you can start to think about other things – like your work.
And, if what has happened is something negative, give yourself some time to sort it out. Talk with your friends, family and loved ones. Take a little time for yourself. Allow yourself to work through your feelings and to deal with whatever it is you need to.
Your Work Will Be There
We live in a world of instant gratification today where we are led to believe that we can control every aspect of our existence. We give little thought to the unexpected occurring, because the unexpected always seems to happen to someone else. This is why it’s such a shock when it happens to you!
Your work will still be waiting for you when you return to it. And when you do you’ll find yourself refreshed and you will discover that your focus is better than ever, and the work you do is outstanding because you’ve dealt with the unexpected rather than trying to push it aside to get your work done.
