Isn't it amazing how things sometimes come along at exactly the right time? I was sitting thinking that I needed to make some time to review my goals and plan some next steps and then I read Kate's post about Striking Mums .
This project is exactly what I need right now and so, here I am writing my first post and planning how to continue.
- To get a new job - Those of you who read my blog regularly will know that in May I returned to to world of employment after a number of years of being self-employed. The job I got is providing supply cover at a Pre-School, so there are no guaranteed hours each week. My goal now is to get a job with guaranteed hours and a regular income.
- To stop wasting time - I'm terrible for letting the day slip away pretending to be busy, so I want to discipline myself into doing productive work every day. I need to get back into the habit of making a 'Must Do' list for the day that I can cross off as I achieve things (I like crossing things off).
- To not be a slave to my computer - The default for my computer is going to be "off" rather than "on". Having spent seven years as a self-employed writer/blogger I'm used to sitting in front of my computer and it always being on. To help me be less tied to my laptop I'm going to switch it off and put it away rather than keeping it on my desk and I'm going to ban my iPad from my bedroom so I don't automatically reach for it. I'd rather access my email/social media for an hour a day than continue to let it suck time away from me.
So there you are...
