Embracing Failure, Self-Care, and Stepping Out of Your Comfort Zone - Robin Bates

Robin Bates is the overlord at Coaching for Geeks and he joins us today to discuss self care and how it applies to driving instructors. We discuss the importance of routines and how they can help us relax at the end of the day, how to find out what we actually enjoy doing and how to make time for it. We speak about the need to make hay while the sun shines, but not to overwork and risk burn out. 

Robin also shares some examples of how he's stepped out of his comfort zone and some of the success it resulted in. And, as always Robin is gracious enough to share some of the things he's not great at but trying to improve.
