I finally caved this year and bought an Apple® Watch. It wasn’t that I coveted one and quite frankly I was sort of annoyed by my Fitbit® friends who walk around, count every step and then post on Facebook® about hitting 10,000 steps in a day. Try telling an RN that 10,000 steps is an achievement!
With an iPhone®, Apple® watch, iPad® and a spiffy touch-screen laptop computer, you could say I’m extremely connected and there’s a high probability that you are too. All of these devices are tools helping me to manage my legal nurse consulting business. Whether I’m in my office, waiting at the departure gate or standing in line at Walmart®, I’m on the job.
Tom’s birthday is in January and mine is in February. We don’t celebrate each other getting older by buying stuff. It’s not that we don’t have enough stuff – it’s just that neither one of us care very much about stuff.
Growing up in New Orleans taught me that you can have a party anywhere and for just about any reason. Tom learned this firsthand at a funeral in New Orleans where even death is worthy of celebration.
I’ve always believed that everything that’s happened in my life (both good and bad) has propelled me to the course of events I’ve been blessed to experience with Certified Legal Nurse Consultants. You could say legal nurse consulting and mentoring Certified Legal Nurse Consultants is my destiny.
You probably know at least one person whose parents “set them up in business.” But let’s face it, most of us are not so lucky to have crazy rich parents and are on our own to subsidize our success.
In my New Year’s blog I encouraged you to set big goals for 2019. Yes, I believe in goals, and I also believe that one goal should drive many of the other goals you set for yourself and your legal nurse consulting business each year.
Opportunity rarely presents the way you expect it to – it’s often a master of disguise. Case in point – a new Certified Legal Nurse Consultant rejected an opportunity to consult on a legal nurse consultant job because it was outside of her specialty.
Do you ever long for EASY? Yesterday I sure did when my computer was behaving badly. My lifelines – Tom and my very expensive tech company were unable to come to my rescue and subsequently I was out of the computer business for six hours.
The comparison game is a trap. You can always find someone who has more than you do – more success, money, health, love or whatever it is you desire. And sometimes to make themselves feel better, people will find someone who has less (just watch Jerry Springer).
