What’s up by Claudia Pellicori

On the 21st of June I had a baby, Leo arrived in my family. This experience transformed my life, some things deep inside me changed.
In the last months I have even noticed that many relevant points I observed when I worked with my customers are fundamental in being a mum too. I have put in my pockets numerous lessons so far, but there are 3 points above all that I want to share with you:

1) Never stop growing. A child makes you better. You strongly feel you are part of a whole. You want to give him a better world where he can grow, discover his potential and learn. So you start by evolving yourself because you know that if we improve ourselves, people around us will thrive too. You always have to remember to nourish yourself constantly if you want to be able to contribute to your community and organisation.

2) Focus focus focus. The energy and time that your baby really needs are a lot, so prioritizing and focusing become very very important. You have to choose the first items in your to do list, which means that you are renouncing to the others in that moment even if it doesn’t mean that the other things are not important. The Pareto’s 80/20 rule that states “20 percent of focused effort results in 80 percent outcome” is fundamental.

3) Get free from fear. Fear is very dangerous because it can block you, it can decide on your behalf and infect who is around you. Fear of the unknown, of not being good enough, of not having security, of making mistakes. You have to trust yourself, people and the system. You need to stop controlling everything and abandon your expectations. I’m discovering that to be a mum is making me a better professional. Bringing our personal life lessons to our professional lives, and the opposite as well, enriches our vision and comprehension of complexity. These 2 sides of ourselves are strongly interconnected and never as today I know that my growth is based on both.
