I have issues sticking to plans. I have issues setting goals and attaining them and I am not super good quite yet at organizing things like a Ragnar team.
I don’t know why. I do really well on the plan for a week or two and then I either forget or subconsciously sabotage. Neither of those are good.
So I am working on being more productive. That’s my goal. To have a short list of things to to every day that move me towards my end goal. (Slight Edge movements….we will talk about that book another time.)
To move towards my goal, I’ve gathered a couple of tools.
Just as a bank account protects you during a financial crunch, a Career Savings Account™ protects you during a career crunch. You need a CSA because you’ll eventually face at least one of these major transitions:
• You will hit a Career Ceiling and get stuck, requiring sharp skills to free yourself.
• You will experience a Career Bump and unexpectedly lose your job, requiring strong relationships to survive.
• You will make a Career Jump to a new role, requiring solid character to push through uncertainty and chaos.
• You will get a surprise Career Opportunity, requiring dedicated hustle to take advantage of it.
It took me sixteen years to figure out how to call a Do Over on my career. Please don’t wait sixteen more seconds before starting yours.
I haven’t started it yet, to be honest. But I did start the 10 day Do Over challenge (It’s one of the bonuses when you pre-order the Do Over book) It’s 10 days out of your life and 10-15 minutes of work every day. You get to revamp whatever you choose. Ten days. You can do it. (And I think this challenge is one that’s only available with the pre-order..)
When I preordered Do Over, I got ANOTHER sweet bonus: the e-book for the 30 Day Hustle. It’s not available any other way. (You can join the 30 Day Hustle Facebook page…but you have to watch Jon Acuff’s blog. He posts a 48 hour open invite and then closes it back up. SO keep an eye on his website because the 30 Day Hustle Facebook page alone is worth the (free) price of admission. OR YOU COULD BUY THE DO-OVER BOOK.)
The second e-book I bought and am LOVING is the 6 Week Declutter Challenge. I am four days in and so far, my kitchen and my living room look incredible. Author Corie Clark starts you off slow, clearing surfaces. Then moves into heavier duty things…but never any more than 15 minutes a day. That’s the beauty, you’re eating the proverbial elephant that is your house….15 minutes at a time. I’ve hauled out 3 huge bags of stuff we don’t need anymore and I’m excited to get more purged!
So all in all, we are in full spring cleaning mode in more ways than one here at Chez Cupcake. I was going to talk about my amazing dayplanner from Erin Condren, but I think that’s gong to have to be all its own post. It’s that amazing.
GO FORTH AND BE AMAZING THIS WEEKEND. Just because I said so.
