Not letting life get in the way of a good tip.

How often do you find that, “life gets in the way” of doing what you either want or obliged to do?  Things happen, that are out of your control, and dealing with these events often mean that you can’t devote as much time to your work as you would like, or you can’t go on holiday as planned, or similar.

Now I don’t know about you – and perhaps I’m being a little self-centred here – but I find that when these things happen you can often become so self-absorbed that you tend to block out from your own mental processes the fact that others have do deal with what life throws at them too.  That people you work with or friends have to deal with problems and issues in the same way as you do.  I don’t mean this in a nasty, completely selfish way.  It’s just human nature to concentrate on dealing with your own issues when they arise, or those of your immediate family.

They say that some of the most stressful “life events” we have to deal with as adults are moving house and having children.   The times that I’ve moved house, and on two occasions had the joy of bringing a new life into the world, I took some time off work.  I think the Missus would have been a little less than impressed if I hadn’t!  And so it was tremendous respect that I watched how two of the tipsters I follow go through these events recently, each barely taking a breather from tipping whilst they did so.

Wayne at Northern Monkey moved house a little while ago, but the tips kept coming.  I was minded too this week of how easy it can be to forget that the tipsters whose expertise we benefit from and who send their emails out on a daily basis do not commit every single waking second to reading form, writing and sending out emails to their members, and recording their results, but in fact are just “normal” folk dealing with day to day life as we all do.  Wayne explained how he had fallen asleep whilst preparing a members’ email in the wee small hours after working overtime in his day job.  Can’t help but admire his diligence and work ethic.

And congratulations to Kieran of the Morning Value Service (Lite) service whose life was both enriched and at the same time (in my experience) made more complicated for ever by the birth of his daughter recently.  Kieran’s paternity leave from tipping?  Three days.

Figures for the month to date below – more by way of thoughts on performance in the end of month review later this week, including observations on a quite remarkable Saturday.
