Ask a professional...

November 26, 2017

 

Tonight I am sat anxiously hearing my twin babies cry. They are 20 months old and haven’t yet slept through the night. A typical night is 5-6 hrs sleep with 4-9 wakeups. 

 

Tonight and for the next 4 nights I have hired a sleep coach Katie-Jane who has a 💯 success rate. It’s going to be torturous but worth it for the sanity of my family. It got me reflecting though that we don’t ask for help enough. 

 

My thoughts

  • You can’t be an expert of everything, problems can be troubleshooted much quicker if you get a pro in! This obviously applies significantly at work. 

  • There is no shame in asking for help, coaching or guidance. In fact to assist with a work problem, people would be flattered that you asked! 

  • It is great to work in a multi skilled team, they can be built dynamically to suit the problem - I typically call this a task force. In a work situation my task force would meet daily for 15 mins (usually on the phone). In this instance, my task force is my family, the coach and a brilliant twin mums group on Facebook that are a virtual listening ear. 

     

    So if you have a problem that you are struggling to resolve, this week call in the reinforcements. I promise you won’t regret it. 

 

Thanks for reading.
