I had been putting off making a schedule for myself all week. I gave it a lot of thought, and really believed that I would be able to put something together yesterday afternoon. Events happened yesterday that change things a lot.
First, I found out that I lost my Avon downline. Granted, the people under me were not putting forth much effort into their own business. But I did some training and asked questions and realized I could have been doing things differently, too. So, now I can choose to start over and do it to the best of my ability. This will make me a better person and make my business more successful. I will be putting this into my schedule and sticking to it. I enjoy making the extra money and meeting new people.
Second, I found out that the employment agency that I have been working with the most has set up a temp-to-hire job for me. Woo hoo! It doesn't pay as well as I would like, but it sounds like something I can easily handle. This will definitely be the biggest chunk of my schedule. But, I know that I have to use Avon to make up the money difference in order to pay all my bills.
Something else I have been seriously contemplating is going back to school. I was really leaning toward doing this before I knew about the job. Now I'm not sure if I can honestly fit it into my schedule. I've been told that one course takes about 10-15 hours a week. Can I really fit this in? I know that with my disabilities that I have, I probably would have to spend more like 12-17 hours a week on a class. I'm one that has to take a lot of notes and re-read them in order to comprehend and retain a lot of information.
So, I now have to take all this information, digest it, make some decisions, and then make my schedule. I know what I will be doing today and tomorrow!
