It took me awhile to think about what I was going to write. It hit me when one of my co-workers started talking about zodiac signs. I am a Capricorn (I go based off of the original 12) and I was looking at the characteristics when I felt disappointed. One of the items that got my attention was that Capricorns are very reliable and never let you down. Then I got to thinking how my last month has gone…
I haven’t been unreliable but I haven’t stuck to my word as well. If you haven’t noticed, this is the first time I have posted a blog in a month. I have not been posting on Tutors of Life Instagram everyday like I want to. Lastly, I have not been posting the podcast videos in a timely fashion. I’m not saying that I have been a complete failure, but I have been slacking. There are a lot of things on my mind that I should be doing and I just have been more selfish with my time. I have been doing things that I want to do, not things that I told others I would do.
This is something that I want to work on in the next month. I am going to start writing down a to-do list everyday in my planner. In my OneDrive, I have a huge list of personal and business tasks that I need to do, so I will take at least 1 from each list everyday to accomplish. That way, I can be a little selfish but also doing the business work I promised. Next, I want to put due dates on my tasks list as well. Some of the things are a little more sensitive timewise, and by putting the deadline I will be more pushed to complete it.
Now, how do I make sure that I am not falling behind or not completing them when I say. Well, Shaun will have to do as my accountability partner. Down the road, I would like to have a business friend that we can communicate back and forth with and keep each other in check. I also, want to have some sort of reward system. That way, when Shaun sees that I have been getting my things done, then we can go get something that I want. This is another way to keep me pushing and actually getting the things done that I promised.
In the end, I feel like I have been a little selfish this month and I want to step away from that. I want to remember my purpose is to help others around me. Yes, I can still do things for myself but when I promise something then I need to follow through with it.
Overall, it has been a very busy month so it was a lot harder to see the changes. I have a good plan and goal for the next month and I am excited to see where I will be at 5 months.
Keep pushing yourself
