Ouch… That means trouble ahead… Indeed, if you’re a fish with more than on set of fins, you’re not a traditional fish, this means you can’t be locked up in one single box. What should you do then? forget that you can swim in many different ways, and use only one… split your life in several boxes, connecting one set of fins with only one community… using most of your brain energy to keep your life segregated rather than embracing all aspects of it… or decide to play with it, knowing that you are more than the sum of the perspectives of YOUR self you can identify. I actually wrote a full chapter on this, within my book Swim Like a Fish: An Easy Guide to Developing Self-Leadership, and yes you want to embrace all aspects of YOUR self. Even though the world around you may see the boxes as different, you know they are complementary. The coach and business author Florence Dambricourt would not exist if FlorenceD the fiction writer, the cartoonist and the photographer was not here to observe the world around her in a certain light; and the fiction writer FlorenceD would not have written her first collection of short stories The House in Wicklow if the coach Florence Dambricourt would not have given her the tool to keep her focus.
For my birthday today I’m delighted to share with you The House in Wicklow, a collection of seven short stories taking place in Ireland. Enjoy the read, and enjoy connecting with every aspect of YOUR self.
