One of methods of procrastination when I have an essay to write is to surf the internet and seek out anybody else thinking about the same issues I tend to chunter on about. In those travels I have communicated with arts practitioners in Canada (http://www.ccahtecrossingborders.blogspot.ca/)
a medic in New Zealand (www.heartsinhealthcare.com )
and a leader in Nurse Education in Scotland (http://nurseeducationrt.blogspot.co.uk/ ).
Making these connections fuels my curiosity and provides motivation and energy for continuing to make links between my nursing past, present and future and my creative coaching skills that are emerging as a surprisingly important element of my identity.
It is easier to guess
what is coming next
than really pay attention
to what people want to say.
Quicker to mind read expectations,
presume the starting point
anticipate the end.
More efficient to not ask questions,
Professional to hope they won’t want
more from you
than you can give.
Safer to close the door
when they have gone.
hope they don’t hear you sigh.
