A better day + a new small goal

Tuesday, August 09, 2011

I was in good spirits today. I got in my morning workout (Day 8 of the Thirty Day Shred) and got a good amount of job search stuff in the morning. I ran some errands in the afternoon. All in all, a decently productive day so far. Best of all, I'm thinking positive thoughts and not being hard on myself. Despite the setbacks I've experienced, between the opportunities available to me and my own initiative and hard work, I can make a good, satisfying career for myself.

I have set my sights on a time management goal that's manageable. I am aiming for one focused, single-minded hour (with two five minute breaks) of focused work on career/networking stuff or independent writing each day. These days, I have been doing a lot of errands and watching TV in the evening while doing career work. I get an good amount of work done, then. But I need at least one focused hour. This is less important now than it will be during the school year, because now, I basically have all day to do it. But I think it's a small, good goal to start with. I am going to take 9-10pm today for it!

    I think that makes sense. It's amazing what can be accomplished in that focused hour, too. Glad you had a better day. :)

    My favorite mantra I took away from this site is "start small, build big!" I like to think about this for exercise (starting with 15 minute blocks and gaining consistency) as well as other life tasks. If you start by giving 1 focused hour to networking/writing, you may even end up wanting to give more. Good luck!
