Welcome to the Accunect Blog!
It's been a crazy year. I had a lot of personal challenges this year that took up way too much of my time.
Plus, I've been trying to develop the new website, the practitioner directory, a new certification course, and preparing the Connect instructor training program. Bottom line is something had to give in that whole process and it ended up being the email newsletter that I used to send out.
I could moan about how busy I am, and that it's not fair, but that's life.There's probably at least one of you who has too much to do as well. The trick to a healthy, balanced life is being able to adapt. That's what I teach anyways. Accunect helps a person recover from stress and come back into their "adaptive range." When we are in a place where our body is able to adapt to stress, we stay healthy. Sometimes you end up teaching what you have to learn.
A lot of people have written to ask us to please make sure we have their email correct as they haven't received a newsletter. It's nice to know that people find what I write interesting and want to stay connected.
So I'm adapting by changing my strategy: we're discontinuing the old newsletter format in favor of more frequent blog posts - you'll get more frequent, shorter emails with a link to the latest blog post, plus a little additional info about upcoming courses and other news. The old newsletter was daunting to prepare, and many people said they didn't have time to read such a lengthy email. So this will be a win-win for everyone.
Perfect is the enemy of good. Voltaire said something close to that, and I repeat it often. Now I'm listening. I think of something interesting to say at least once a week, and I'm just going to say it when I think it - instead of waiting for it to fit into the next newsletter, or my next book.
