This is something that hit home this week, and something I have been neglecting ever since becoming self-employed. One of the main benefits of being self-employed is having the freedom to manage your own time better and not be chained to a desk or office for 8 straight hours at a time. I however have failed at this. Being a consultant means that I know the more hours I work the more I get paid. Because of this I have sometimes taken it to the extreme and haven’t left myself (or made myself) enough time for the freedom that self employment brings. What I am talking about here is fitness.
Stick me in front of a computer or give me a phone and I can be incredibly productive no matter where I am in the world, and that is strangely addictive. But what is it all worth if you don’t have your health?
I have noticed this, had a word with myself and at a board meeting with myself we have decided to do something about it.
This is where I need your help. I have signed up to do the Color Run in Manchester to raise money for Cancer Research UK. I won’t go into my personal experiences with Cancer but the vast majority of us have got a story to tell. So i roped in my other half and my sister for moral support and the three of us have set up a Just Giving page to help raise as much money as we can. Anything you could give would be amazing, and would not only help go towards a cure for cancer, but it also makes me feel somewhat more motivated knowing that you are sponsoring me to shift my arse for charity. Where this goes after the Color Run I have no idea, but I promise you I won’t stop there.
Here is the Just Giving link: http://www.justgiving.com/ColorRunDalazo Anything at all you can donate would be greatly appreciated. Even if you have one less drink this weekend and donate that money to Cancer, you are making a difference.
Have a great weekend, and thanks for reading.
