And I'm Off and Running

Monday, March 21, 2011

I outlined my week last night. It appears that it will be busier than I originally thought. So, I get to test my motivation and determination. But, meanwhile, I'm off and running....!

Scheduling for the Week

Sunday, March 20, 2011

I have decided that Sunday afternoons are a great time to schedule the upcoming week. There's usually not too much going on and I can do this while watching sports or before I go visiting, etc. I will have the time to coordinate both my purse and wall calendars and make sure I have ready whatever is needed. I am hoping to see an improvement of my general scheduling each day. I really want to feel that I am using each day to the fullest and not forgetting to or putting off something that I really want to accomplish. I will keep a journal to see if and how I am improving. Hoping it works!

    Sounds good! Hope it works for you... wish my life would settle down so I could set up routines, but then I always change them, so until I stop that, there's not much chance of getting into a routine. funny, though, when my grandmother was alive, she had a routine with her meals, and it was always great to visit her on a Friday cuz I knew it was Shake 'n Bake pork chops...

Still Struggling With Schedule

Friday, March 18, 2011

With no job to structure my day around other than Avon, I am still struggling to get myself into some kind of schedule. My sleep is sometimes good and sometimes bad. I find myself spending more time than I'd like on things that aren't getting me anywhere (like being on the computer). I also find that I don't spend enough time on things that would benefit me more (like looking for jobs or organizing my life.) I keep telling myself that this is one of my goals, but I'm not getting any closer to achieving this goal.

I do make a "to do" list every day. I do manage to accomplish a lot of what's on my list. This does help me a bit. But I'm still not happy with the big picture. I need to re-think this big goal and break it down into smaller sections or something. I just get aggravated with myself when I don't feel that I'm productive enough.

    Small steps are not so overwhelming and easier to tackle. emoticon

    I think the to-do list is a great idea! I know I struggled too when I was laid off a few years ago, at trying to find a schedule, it's so easy to just let the day fly by...Anyway, I don't have much advice, I was pregnant at the time so I just enjoyed it. :P I think setting small goals though will help, maybe try to set a time to get up every day by, even if it's 9am. And personally being a stay at home mom, I try to break up the "chores"- some in the morning, some in the afternoon. I notice the more I get done in the morning the better I feel and I seem to have more energy then. If I leave it till the afternoon or evening at times, it never gets done. Good luck, you'll find a groove and good luck with the job search!

A gorgeous St. Patrick's Day!

Thursday, March 17, 2011

As someone who is part Irish, I've always enjoyed the festive spirit of St. Patrick's Day. This year, it seems especially festive to me. Maybe it's because I've been away from my family for 14 years. Maybe it's due to the fact that Detroit's weather is supposed to be sunny and almost 70. Maybe it's because I've been doing some Avon training and am geeked about getting out. passing out books and meeting new people. I'm not concerned about the real reason - it may be all of the above and more. I'm just going to enjoy the day and make the best of it. Happy St. Patrick's Day to everyone!

    Top o’ the mornin’ to ya!

‘Tis a fine day for the wearing of the green!

May the sun shine always on your face,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the road always rise up to meet your feet, and
Might you be in Heaven for an hour ‘afore the Devil knows you’re dead!

Erin Go Braugh!
