When the letter landed to telling me I had finally come to the top of the list for a minor operation I had been waiting for I was pleased.
1st of February, great I thought, I cleared my diary for February as I was told I may not be able to drive for 4 weeks, although I could be lucky and it just be 3 or 5 days.
I thought of all those online courses I have stacked up, I thought of all the family history had planned. I filled the freezer with simple meals for the family to re heat. ORGANISED! I was so ready for this.
Yep you guessed it, there was so many things I hadn't thought about, it wasn't just not being able to drive! I can't write and eating those meals in the freezer isn't that easy too.
Add in how much extra effort it is to get dresses or how hard it is to butter a slice of toast for myself!
Yep six days and in and I feeling frustrated at how little I can do to keep my business ticking over. "I will do lots of lives" I thought, but having issues washing and styling my hair and restricted what I can wear has meant no lives yet. Using my voice has made it easier to send texts, write emails, or even post on Facebook. I will do more of that even when my hand is better.
This is not a post for your sympathy, this is a post to say can you business survive if you are suddenly out of the equation?
Do you have a plan for if you laptop breaks down?
Can you carry on without your phone?
Be prepared my friends.
Do what you enjoy, Enjoy what you do!
