TODAY A&I October BSG Week 3

Saturday, October 15, 2011

Do I believe that today can/will be the first day of the rest of my life? Why yes I do!! And what, you may wonder, am I going to do to make today different? Well, let me tell you, as long as you have wondered about it. emoticon

Today I actually changed my work schedule to accommodate something that I wanted to do, just because I want to. I moved my bank cleaning jobs to tomorrow, so that I can attend the Party in Pink Zumbathon charity dance-fitness party tonight. Way out of character for me to adjust work to fit what I want to do. Usually the other way around. That is something that simply must change! Not always possible, but from now on, when it is possible, that's the way it is going to be! YEAH ME!!!

The other thing that must/will be different is my bad procrastination habit. I put things off like nobody's business!! See, I'm getting my blog done right away! LOL I put the smallest things off, then they pile up, and I have so much to do! It gets overwhelming, and I don't get much of anything done, then I am so mad at myself!! I don't like being mad at me, because I really like me alot, so this is my other big change.

Only changing two things right now, because otherwise I might get too close to perfect, and then I'd get a big head, and I REALLY HATE it when people get big heads, and that takes it back to the I like me thing, so you get the idea.

So two things--ME before work when possible, and no more putting things off!! I'll let you know how that's working for me later! emoticon

    emoticon job on changing your work schedule to fit in something you want to do! I think many of us can be bad about procrastinating at times! While some may look at this thinking you only changed 2 things but the way I look at is that you changed something period! If we keep taking baby steps towards our goals we will get there! Good for you!!!

    emoticon BLOG. I think it is amazing that you changed work to do something you want to do. That is a huge thing for many people, and I think it is a great step forward. Procrastination is another awesome thing to change. So many people are guilty of procrastination and I think it is a huge time saver once we learn not to procrastinate and put things off. you are off to an amazing start! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Love the two things you decided to change for yourself! Procrastination is a habit I also have to work on...I should post Nike's motto of Just Do It on signs around my house! I look forward to hearing all about the Zumbathon. It sounds fun and for such a worthy cause! I'm glad you put yourself before work!

    I love that you changed your schedule for your own benefit - to make time to do what you want to do! I think that the realization that we CAN do that and still accomplish what we needs to be done (on a slightly different schedule) is an important step forward! I hope you enjoyed the Party in Pink Zumbathon!
