What I have learned in the last while….

Hello  Everyone!!

I have been very vacant from the Blog for a while.  There have been several things going on for me:  Track and Field Season as a coach/photo timer & convenor.

Year end at school.

Moved to a new home in late June.

As you can see there have been a few things going on.

What I’ve learned…….

1.  Just because you are good at something does not mean that you need to keep doing it. 3 years ago I was involved in purchasing a photo timing system for Track and Field in Waterloo Region.  Along with that purchase came operating the system.  That has taken me away from coaching the athletes on meet day as I am tied up at the finish line for the entire meet.   I have really missed working with the athletes, getting to know them and helping them to reach their potential.   Next year I will be looking for some students and/or teachers to train to operate the system so that I can get back to what I enjoy….Coaching!!

2.  Make sure that you build in a buffer space when you are moving.  We sold our old house and purchased our new one on the same day in June.  That was way too busy!!!  I would suggest spending the few hundred dollars on getting some bridge financing so that you have a week to move out of your old place and into your new one!!
