In contrast to yesterday, it took me a while to get going today, but I’m hoping that after reading this article that I’ve gained some perspective. And as a side note, this is not the first interesting article I’ve read from Forbes. I’ll have to put them on my reading list.
The take aways from that article are:
1. goals and plans
2. know yourself deeper than you have before.
“Until you let go of what you’re doing and thinking that keeps you stuck and small, you can’t build a happy, successful career. Your limitations will follow you in every new direction until you address them.”
Ugh! That’s true, limitations follow! After reading that I cringed at what’s on my heels. Get away from me disorganization, distraction, laziness! And then, it also said:
“You also need a 3-month, 6-month and 12-month plan, with specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and timely goals, and someone in your court to hold you accountable. Again, don’t try this on your own. You’ll fail.”
And I thought, that’s another thing, the hard thing.(for me) You don’t try this on your own. That’s the hard one. I’m good with keeping to myself. In some ways, that’s what teacher’s do, but I’m not a teacher anymore, I’m a writer and networking is a necessary part of “careering”.
Yep. True, until next time.
