Dealing with obstacles

Last week, I was on holiday in the historic village of Eyam in England’s beautiful Peak District. One evening, my husband and I decided that we would walk a couple of miles across the fields for dinner at a pub in a neighbouring village. This was easy enough on the way there as it was sunset so there was sufficient light for us to see the path, the signposts, the stiles, dry stone walls and gates. We could easily identify and avoid any obstacles.

When we left the pub a few hours later, it was pitch black, the moon peeking out between the clouds. Our head torches only illuminated a very narrow area in front of  us and it was much trickier to pick out our way through the fields on this unfamiliar route. Avoiding walking into walls, ditches, sleepy cattle and the many cowpats was quite a task.

Obstacles at work or at home can sometimes be difficult to identify and overcome too so I’ve created a worksheet that will get you thinking about your obstacles and how you can handle them. Here’s a sneaky peek at it –


If you’d like a copy of the worksheet, just click on the link below.


Today’s pebble for you to ponder: what’s the greatest obstacle for you at work or at home at the moment? How will you tackle it?

What do you think?
