I HAVE already been told on numerous occasions that being named Tetley's Super League Coach of the Month can be something of a poisoned chalice.
There are countless tales of coaches picking up the award and then finding their team suffering a massive dip in form.
Clearly, it's something I don't want to see happen at Huddersfield Giants.
A lot of people have put in a lot of hard work over the past few months to get the club into its current healthy position, and none of us want to see all that hard work destroyed over the next month or so by some below-par performances.
The key after having picked up this award - which I believe is recognition for the work of everyone at the club and not just me - is to make sure we don't start falling in love with ourselves.
It's possible this could have been the case with other award winners in the past and contributed significantly to the dips I have already spoken about.
But I certainly don't want it to be the case here.
And with the programme we have coming up over Easter, I don't think there will be much time available to bask in all the praise we, as a club, have been receiving.
Two games in four days is a frightening prospect for a sport as physically demanding as rugby league.
As soon as we've played tomorrow night's home game against Salford City Reds, it'll be straight into our final preparation for Wakefield Trinity Wildcats on Easter Monday.
In fact, my work towards that Wakefield match will start at around 10.30 tomorrow night when I review the match video.
The boys will be in first thing Saturday morning when they will be sellotaped back together by the medical staff and then we'll review Friday's match.
What happens then will depend on the overall shape of the players. Their physical condition will dictate how much work on the training field is undertaken.
But even though it's bound to be a tough ask for the players over Easter, you can't afford to pander to their needs.
There's little time for sympathy at times likes this, it's a case of doing what you can for the boys and pushing them back onto the park for another gruelling 80-minute stint.
Only after this second match is played can we start to come up for air and assess fully what has just taken place during this four-day stretch.
But, hang on a second, there's then the small matter of Leeds Rhinos at Headingley next Friday night to consider!
It's just a good job we enjoy what we are doing so much and are more than happy putting in the hours.
Right now, I have to admit the job is fantastic, it's better than I ever imagined it could be.
It wouldn't be too far off the mark to say it's been a dream start to my coaching career, and long may it continue.
I'm proud of what has been achieved so far, and to be honest it just makes me want to work even harder and achieve even more.
We're all riding high after the win over Wigan and we definitely want to maintain that momentum against Salford tomorrow night.
But we know it won't be an easy task.
I'm well aware that everyone is tipping us to beat Salford, and with a bit to spare.
However, that's not fair on coach Karl Harrison and his side.
They are a well-drilled, well-coached side, as their performance at Bradford Bulls last Friday night clearly showed.
If we don't approach this game like we did the match against Wigan, it could prove a very tough evening.
And after the way we've been playing, that's the last thing we want.
We also want to win to keep the feelgood factor throughout the McAlpine Stadium.
I've struck an excellent relationship with Town manager Peter Jackson, and it's great that we're going great guns together.
In fact, we're both suffering from sore backs right now!
On a Monday morning we meet up with each other on the McAlpine corridor and chat about the way our respective teams have just performed.
If there's been a good result, there's always a period of back slapping, and right now that's happening rather a lot. Ouch!
