CHOOSING THE CHALLENGE
By Ruth Monk
I love stability and structure and routine. In fact I thrive on it. I like its security, I like its discipline.
And then I don’t.
All of a sudden I find myself saying yes to suggestions when they come along. – Yes, I’ll learn to teach flow. Yes, I’ll take on that new role at work. Yes, I’ll go canyoning. Or (most recently) Yes, I’ll write a blog. That’s when the panic sets in. What do I know about writing a blog…I write worksheets and resources for teenagers and school reports. The last time I wrote anything of length I was at university and it was an essay towards my Science degree. And I’m pretty sure a blog is different to writing a scientific essay. But I said yes for a reason. I need a challenge and I want to try something new.
So why should we challenge ourselves, and try new things?
