I find myself in a learning mode lately. It started with trying to brush up on job interviewing skills as I find myself introverted and not self-confident. It then progressed to trying to brush up on my job skills (typing, 10-key, word, excel and access). I'm trying to fit in at least 15 minutes a day on each of these things. I know I need to try to fit more time in, but I don't have a handle on my schedule just yet. I also need to start thinking outside the box on finding companies that are hiring but not necessarily posting these jobs on traditional sites. I did start making cold calls to companies: I need practice on that - I'm still uncomfortable with that.
I noticed that this learning mode has traveled over to SP. I have been reading and saving articles more lately. I want to REALLY explore the site more. I believe there's stuff I'm missing that could really help me in various areas of my life.
It all is good in theory, but, like I mentioned, I need to get a handle on my scheduling of time. I'm getting a little better by watching the clock more. I keep threatening to get the kitchen timer out. It's time to do that starting right now. For my own good, I need to improve and become the best that I can be.
