It’s a pretty good start to the day when the dentist calls to say that your appointment is cancelled, due to illness. It happened to me this morning.

Normally I like going to the dentist. Today would have been no different, once I’d got there. It was the ‘going’ I was not looking forward to; I’m finishing a book and I didn’t want to interrupt what I’m doing.

Apart fro routine maintenance of my teeth, there’s also upkeep of this blog (plenty to fix there, as you’ll have noticed, fillings mostly), two websites, publication of a new edition of my book, Difficult People, on Kindle (it needed two extractions and an implant to bring it up to date), my online course How to be Free of Guilt (an appointment to go live of 30th January), and completion of my second e-book,  A Solution Focused Guide to Personal Resilience (currently with the hygienist).

As well as all that, I’ve a lot going on with other projects which are still under wraps. I wished my dentist a speedy recovery, but she’ll never know how happy she made me when she asked her receptionist to call me this morning.

But at work it is almost as if the opposite is true, there doesn’t seem to be a pause button for email, mobile phones, and multiple demands.
