The last several weeks I have had the pleasure of not only finding a “local” (expat Canadian) programmer to help me with my various web projects that I do from Mexico, but also finding a true local (Mexican) assistant who has been able to take many repetitive office and computer tasks off my hands. Having a bit more free time has reminded me of the critical self-employed skill of knowing when to:
1) Work within your practice as a Feldenkrais Practitioner. This is, engaging in your practice and evolving your skills as a practitioner.
2) Work on your business itself, giving it what it needs – as an entity – to evolve and grow.
Just a thought. Very often working on our practice and working within it are two separate functions. Both seem to be necessary for continued development.
