(Apologies in advance if you’re eating or of a sensitive disposition, this post contains 💩…)
On a recent family walk, I noticed that when our dog decides its time to 💩, he always seems to look round at us while it’s all happening. (Clearly, we avert our eyes to give him privacy, but a dog has got to do what a dog has got to do!).
My daughter discovered the reason behind this is inherited nature & he’s actually checking his ‘pack’ is safeguarding him while he’s technically vulnerable.
Well, we all need someone to watch our back sometimes, especially in business (but probably not when we’re on the 💩 job!). Sometimes we need to bounce around ideas, sense check a decision or just feel a sense of community.
I am so lucky to have a real mix of long term friends, more recent acquaintances I now call friends & a fabulous business network that I know I can reach out to at any time for that very reason. And each element will offer me something different – sometimes solutions, sometimes an ear to listen, & sometimes to tell me to keep on pushing through, when I’m feeling vulnerable.
Do you have the same?
Who has your back? Who would you call on if you need to?
Do you feel you perhaps don’t need a pack?
Let me know.
