The hustler - yup, that's me!

Monday, August 19, 2013

Move it or lose it! Hustle hustle hustle!!! Stagnancy breeds icky things...and mosquitos!

So with all the "life changes" going on...I decided to really put myself out there and basically tell people what I want career wise... and guess what: I got answered AND another part time job on top of it!

OK - the tally is this:
June - unemployed
July - interviews & hired as a part timer
August - part time and realizing I can do my own business if I tried (job #2 I guess)
End of August - another part time job to start in a week and be steady in Sept.

So that is 3 part time jobs with 2 I actually get money for...and then I have another family thing that needs tending to, but no compensation at all...that's job #4 I guess... and then add wife and mother to that list...job #5...job #6....

Eesh! What have I done! emoticon

Just's all good. emoticon

The quick observation of this morning is this: stress and me don't mix, so I am trying take things day by day, do the to-do list in the morning, and then focus on the day at hand. Tomorrow is tomorrow's schedule - not today' why stress over it?

THAT is easier said than done! But at least I am trying!

But it makes sleep hard at I am going to try and work that out as well, but not get stressed about it.

ACK! Just talking about stress...makes me stressed! emoticon

My method of delgating into categories will hopefully work to my advantage this time around....I am usually not a delegator, but an "I got this" type of person. Not anymore...."delegate" is going to become my middle name!

    I'm really happy for you, Annie! It might be stressful but keeping busy with things you actually like doing is one of the secrets of happiness, isn't it?
Good luck with everything!

    With your drive and ambition I know you will succeed. Do you really know how to delegate? It's hard when you are a hard charger like you. You basically have to hand it off to someone, walk away, do not keep checking, take your hand off the wheel and trust that the person you delegated it to can handle it. This is a tough one. I speak from experience. emoticon

    You got this, er, actually you're delegating so you don't got it? You got the delegating?

    You can only do what you can do. The rest is up to God.

    I am going back to work and am stressing over all that needs to be done to get ready for students. You have a good idea of focusing on your to do list for the day and not worrying about tomorrow. I am glad you got yet another part time job! You are one busy person, but you will do well.

    I like that... tomorrow's schedule is tomorrow's so why stress about it today. I'm already stressing over Thanksgiving and Christmas! Do you believe that???!


I'm constantly working on compartmentalizing. Someone taught me that several years so and I'm still working on it.

Have a great day!
