I could feel myself coming to a bit of a mental lull in fact all energy was draining from me to be able to solve anything. I gave up on my current NVQ2 and I even lost the keys at work before I was about to leave for my weekend away.

I’ve also been thinking about how to maintain some consistency in my approach to work, to colleagues and even to customers. That got me thinking of my old tennis practice sessions. 

I think this player is behaving in a consistent way, and recently a counsellor asked me if I might be on the spectrum, possibly having Asperger’s undiagnosed obviously. I suppose I have come up with a range of systems that will help me to cope in most situations where I get stressed and they are often involving finding a buddy to help me talk through a problem.
