I agree with Sue and Harris, and I do not like to see those latest trends that tend to do more harm than good. But being a practitioner myself of a training method called MELT which is not widely known and still does not have peer-reviewed research by its name, I tend to have a more lenient way of looking at this issue. If new methods are used by people respected in the industry, I’ll happily take the time to research it.
My greatest personal challenge is the struggle for balance with all the commitments I make. I love what I do, and I have the hardest time saying ‘no’, particularly if it is for something I really like to do (it’s easy if I don’t care much for it anyway). I have found myself on more than one occasion looking at my schedule for the next day and saying “What was I thinking?”.
