Recently I hit a wall in terms of my energy and enthusiasm. I have been going hard out working with companies in major growth mode, dedicating most of my waking hours getting the people side of these companies sorted so they can deliver their promises to customers and the community.

A wise man once said to me – when you are in HR dealing with change issues, you give a little of yourself every time you interact with people during this process.
So be kind to yourself. Stay in a state of mindfulness. For some its all encompassing and for others its water off a ducks back. Which one are you?
