"Time is probably the biggest non-problem problem my writer clients live with."
Eh? Time, a non-problem problem? Now, that made me very curious of course and Lisa was kind enough to send me the link to her post "How to stop saying: I Don't Have Time"
"Over time (it’s everywhere isn’t it?) I began to hear “space” when clients talked about the lack of time. In fact, the illusory concept tends to vanish completely when set against the backdrop of space. Once we find space, we find what’s real; we find the right now present, and life shifts. Things move.
Lisa has written down a conversation she had with one of her clients and it's not only an interesting 'interview', it makes the space time continuum relation clear, not just for finding time - space for writing that book that has been sitting in your mind for perhaps years now, but also for every day busy business tasks.
Since we have time to write lists of tasks to do, surely we have space to complete them.
Thanks Lisa, learned something again.
Further on the subject of time, we had a busy, filled week and I haven't found space to dive into removing the no-follow from this type-pad blog (link love to those conversationalist who took time to comment here).
Here is what some thoughtful bloggers on Typepad do to address the nofollow issue. They post a weekly summary of people who have made substantial comments on their blog. Not only does this provide the link back, it also acknowledges the contribution made in a very personal way.
What a simple and straightforward alternative (and I do like simple things), so here goes:
Kent Blumberg has kindly found time to create a free E-book of all his post on "12 Elements of Great management", including all comments made, links to related posts and of course the book itself.
Stuart Baker continued his thoughtful discussion on building trust with your prospects and customer by being 'comfortable' in your skin and in your knowledge: How Important Is Trust?
And my friend Marcus Goodyear wrote two extraordinary post about faith, hope, believe and doubt.
"A Christian Comments on God's Blog"
"A Christian Responds on Comments on His Own Blog"
On the Successful and Outstanding Blog(gers) the 'Sense of Urgency' post from Liz Strauss brought some jewels of sentences to the forefront I like to share here (and if urgency isn't time related I wouldn't know what is!):
“When your tired of working harder than you start to work smarter” John Feeney
"the distinction between reacting and responding" Valeria Maltoni
And I can totally relate to what GP in Montana feels: "but sometimes when I’m not feeling that sense of urgency… i’m thinking ahead, thinking… “what’s wrong”?
(Time to get some more items ticked off of my to-do-this-week-list, how's your list doing?)
