Each year.

I stand on the same bridge.

Thinking the same things.

This Year.

Well this year.

As I once again stand on the very same bridge.

I’ve actually acted on my thoughts.

And I’ve distilled them.

All of them.

Down to one simple notion.

The Bridge.

The bridge I am referring to.

Is the bridge of 6 days that lead me from one year.

To the next year.

So it’s the bridge of 6 days from December 26th to December 31st.

One Simple Notion.

The one simple notion that I will take with me.

Over the bridge.

From 2019 to 2020.

Is this:

I am under very little pressure apart from the ones I put on myself.

I think this will help me in 2020.

Because I am at my weakest.

My most panicky.

My most upset.

And riddled with the most self-doubt.

When I feel under pressure.


So here are a few things I’ll change.

  • Say ‘no’ more.
  • Allow slightly longer to do most things.
  • Create regular gaps where I always do absolutely nothing at all.
  • Never book meetings on Friday.
  • Build fitness into my life rather than trying to squeeze it in somewhere.
  • Turn my phone off for at least 8 of the 10(ish) hours that I work each day, Monday to Friday.

That’ll do for starters.


All of this seems obvious to me.

And so much easier to see and do.

When I am stood on The Bridge

So all I need to do now.

Is to remember those feelings.

When I get to the other side.

Happy 2020.
