Are you going bar hoping? Are you going out to eat with friends? Are you going to the movies? All are great plans.
Then there is Sunday, which is next to Monday…that starts the week off again. I can tell you that if you’re not excited about what Monday brings…you probably don’t like your job, and statistics state that you are not as productive as someone who love their job. If you can’t wait till Monday…you probably love your job, and you’re pretty good at it. So where am I going with this?
I’ll tell you. I read a post online in which someone stated that they were sitting in their car crying during lunch because they didn’t want to go back to work because they hated their job. My heart stopped.
Time management, organization, and persistence is the crossroad to productivity, and change.
If this is your first time on my blog…I usually give a poetic summary…that’s metaphoric. You may interpret the meaning totally different from the next person…which is cool. It’s all about sharing thoughts.
There is a sense of urgency that drives my day. I have to do laundry, pick up the kids, and work to get paid. I can’t stop the day because it never ends. Did you see the beautiful purple tulips near the curve on the end?
I have this red elephant on my back. It has a nasty mouth, and it’s always on the attack.
My job is demanding, and I hate my boss. We just received more duties with pay…at the same cost.
Well, reach if you dare for something new, and set your priorities on you if you care about your dreams, your community, the cost of air. Small adjustments can make a difference if you believe…you deserve better than leaving work feeling stressed, depressed, and unseen.
Organization can change your life, and reduce some things you’d normally do twice. Guided productivity is the key; to enjoy life, your position, your time…and it’s free.
Let’s look at organization. It sounds so easy right? Then why are most of us not utilizing the benefits.
1. Closet organization- hmmm, I bet this could save a lot of us time. From simple planning like a color coordinated closet to your entire day… this can keep you on a productive schedule, and reduce stress.
2. Budget- Most banks offer a monthly spending guide which shows your regular spending habits. Are you on or off schedule. Get it together. Put those extra snacks down…me included. LOL
3.Focus on short term goals- If you’re trying to find another job…are you applying to ten jobs a day? Are you talking to friends, and acquaintances about their companies? Are you lining up interviews on the same day?
4. Time management – Are you watching tv or studying for certification ? Are you hanging out with friends that are reminding you..
Oops, your Facebook anniversary stated that you were saying the same thing, and doing the same thing…three years ago. Hmmmm
5. Get a mirror- If your friends are not reflecting progress, why on earth are spending so much time with them ? Surround yourself with people who are moving forward, or move forward alone.
I can tell you all of these things because I modified my behavior by spending less time on entertainment, and more time on productivity…and it made a huge difference. Don’t get me wrong, I will still watch an episode of reality tv, but you can be assured that it was after a productive day.
