Don't take on too much / exhaust yourself.

This campaign tip (no. 46) was published on Friday, 15th February 2019
Also comes under the category of "campaign creep" ... a couple of "wouldn't it be nice to ..." items in my plans are quietly being dropped - before any harm is done - and concentration put on doing key things well. Keep stuff under review.

I am still doing my day job - though much reduced; thoroughly enjoying this week but tired every evening. Promised 'deadlines' - response dates - had a week added as I gave people on the campaign trail "I will get back by ..." responses and all is (more or less) in order. And you may have noticed if you follow this daily hint that some of the text is a bit thin this week.

These pages are written by Graham Ellis of Melksham, Wiltshire. Overlapping a life in IT and IT training, with running a hotel and campaigning for improved public transport, Graham has never been quiet - though he's starting to wind down gently now. He no longer takes overnight guests and has stepped doen from the "Community Rail Officer" role which he accidentally aquired. So he now has more time to write pages such as these and to travel in the UK. He'll be delighted to speak with your group or take a look through your case or camapaign, but be alerted that his time is not limitless even now, and he still has to keep the wolf from the door.

What a difference a campaign makes!

It probably wouldn't have happened without a strong community campaign with which I have been involved. Most days through 2019 I'll be sharing a thought, an idea, a way of working or an experience. Come back here for the links. Discussions via the Coffee Shop Forum - Graham Ellis, 31st December 2018
