I hope you and yours are safe and well. Tomorrow is the first “normal” working day of 2021 and a good day to lay the groundwork for a different year to 2020.

I’ve had a lot of change in my life this past year. Thankfully none of my family has gotten Covid-19 but the numbers of friends and extended family infected or affected directly or indirectly is growing.

Having had an enforced pause that came from losing my job due to the pandemic, I’ve had plenty of time to think about what I want to do with my life and how I’d like to spend my time. All going well, I will turn 60 in August and as this is the year of the Bull (and my year) I’m ready for a change of direction.

I think of myself as a genius and a polymath – and who’s to say otherwise? One of the disadvantages of being good at several things is that it is very easy to have too many irons in too many fires and to spread oneself too thin.

So the biggest changes I plan for 2021 involve me letting several secondary activities go while I concentrate on a very small number of key things that I love to do, am exceptionally good at, and want to improve.

This means you and I may part company…
….or you may decide to stick with me to see what’s in store.

Either way, I wish you well

I will be emailing writing throughout January about the changes I am making, outlining each topic and the approach I am focusing on. I will include a link for you to follow if you would like to remain connected with me on that topic.
