“It is better to beg forgiveness than ask permission.”
Grace Murray Hopper
I love this saying. I try to live by it, except when I’m too scared of someone to think about annoying them by doing something I know I shouldn’t and asking forgiveness.
A week’s grace
I’m writing, dear reader, to beg advanced forgiveness for a lack of content this week.
As you may have seen from my Twitter feed or my newsletter, I started a new contract heading up social media for World Vision UK this week and, coupled with a spectacularly aggressive cold, it’s absorbing all my time and energy.
I take a huge amount of pride in this blog and its regular schedule of content every Wednesday and Friday (and the Saturday newsletter that goes out to subscribers) and I try to provide you with great value and stories from my little world.
Just now, though, I feel that I need to give my full attention and energy to setting myself up at World Vision and organising my thoughts and action plans and, in doing so, I may not be able to create the kind of content I’d like for the blog here.
If you are willing to bear with me for the next 7 days, I will do everything in my power to get back to normal next week.
For those keen to hear how my first week has gone, sign-up for the weekly updates and you’ll get a run-down of everything at the weekend – plus you get my rather wonderful eBook The Art of the Second Chance.
And thank you all, in advance, for your forgiveness.
PS – is asking for forgiveness in advance the same as asking permission…?
