So what do you do when life just runs away from you? I thought after I graduated things would settle down… but it seems the opposite happened! I think what it happened is that I felt like I should have more time to do things, so I got these ideas of catching up on all of my projects, and I have been so overwhelmed by everything else going on! It’s been crazy! So, I decided that stress comes from not living up to the expectations that you set for yourself… So I am going to take a few minutes now, and set some expectations for tomorrow – super simple things – just 3 of them that I can do to get better.
One will be something for work – probably a bigger thing with subparts – I am going to get the tracking portion of the registration system working (including viewing the reports of users individual information – even if just basic.)
Two will be something for my family – I will make dinner tomorrow, and do the dishes.
The third will be something for me – I have a meeting at 6 that I would like to attend. I’m hoping it only takes an hour, but it could be two.
Those are my expectations and goals for tomorrow. Now the next part of a S.M.A.R.T. goal is to set ways in which I will accomplish them – I think the best thing that I can do to get these things finished is to get up and get into work early so I have time before my meeting to get things done. I also need to read some tomorrow, so although this will not be easy, I need to get up on time tomorrow morning, read my book and get ready, and then head into work. This will provide me the ability to get started early before all the distractions of work so that I can get that task done, and it will give me a chance to get home with time to make dinner and do the dishes before I leave. I’m going to use this blog for a little while as a place to set expectations of myself, and to follow through with them. Thanks for the support!
