Mind the Gap!

Posted: 22 February 2024

Mind the Gap!
It is easy to get caught in the hustle of doing, there is always something to do. This year has been a whirlwind, already and it’s nights like tonight when I stay late that I can hear the words of one of my mentors “Mind the Gap Heids”
Tony Ireland, one of the business leaders who brought the Townsville Crocodiles to Townsville, generously shared his wisdom with me for a couple of years about a decade ago, and one of the many things he taught me was about the Gap Theory. It looks at the space between where we are now and where we want to be. Naturally we keep moving towards our goals and achieving but by the time we reach the original goal we are focused on the next one. There is always a gap and it’s easy to fall in and get stuck! 
A great way to “mind the gap” is to look back and reflect on what has been achieved and not just focusing on the work that hasn’t been done…YET!
So reflecting on the start to 2024 when we look at the numbers of people at our events, the numbers of you signing up to our mailing list, the members who are renewing and the new members who have signed up already this year it really is painting a clear picture, our community is building. We have included a welcome to our new members for 2024 later in this email.
We can feel the support and it is exciting to share with you that our fortnightly coffee events are sponsored right up until NOVEMBER!! So that’s every CBD coffee and also every Alternative Behind the Scenes Coffee where we have a unique opportunity to visit a Gold member. We have various events and workshops in the pipe line to help you connect and grow and we are very grateful for the energy, ideas and time that members are contributing.
I encourage you to take a moment to reflect on what you have achieved this year and mind the gap!
