Today I had a conversation with a senior colleague who asked me how I’m settling into my new surroundings. Have I got used to the change, the slower pace of life?
Indeed, I imagined my emancipation from London commutes and the constant buzz of opportunity of activity to be my making Up North. Plenty of time to relax and read, long walks and slow days away from the drain of The City. Who was I kidding. My mum has never once sat down long enough to spell relax. Where do I find the relax gene? I love to connect and collaborate and I say yes to every adventure I’m offered, if it helps me to meet my mission. So, here I am in Chester, seeking out creative and positive people, organising events and hackathons. Collaborating to nudge, cajole and influence new behaviours. Collecting opinions and starting more social [media] networks to meet friends and influence people.
I’ve managed to upset a few apple carts; you don’t get anywhere without doing that, but my values remain my guiding principle for my work and my boundaries remain flexible, thanks and no thanks to social networking.
