Language Professionals Unite • online event
Yesterday, early evening, I had a car accident.
Feeling shaken up and my beloved Land Rover is now in need of a fair amount of TLC! Driving an English car in France is not always very practical! Yet nothing insurmountable if, unlike me, you’re careful at junctions!
Do I need more driving lessons?
Should I be learning from UK driving experts in France?
I just need to remember that:
We can’t control everything, every single second. It’s “only” a car (and a bit of pride and a hole in my bank account!).
I won’t miss my niece’s birthday at the weekend because friends and family have offered lifts.
I have a great car insurance that has promised to sort everything out within 48 hours.
So I don’t need to learn to drive again – or differently – I need support and a plan of action to get things sorted so I can confidently be on my way, again, very soon.
Reflecting on this in the early hours of this morning, I actually feel that it’s the same thing for many of us, language professionals out there, running our own businesses.
There will be bumps.
Sh*t will happen more often than we wish it would!
Do we need yet another course? Another challenge? Another programme?
Do we need support? An energising environment? Accountability and a real plan of action?
I’d like to invite you to share your thoughts over a nice glass of something • or strong coffee • depending on where you are in the world.
