Again. These past days have been difficult and enlightening at the same time. Reflection has been the name of the game, and I expect it to continue for a while yet. On the one hand, I don't like it. It's difficult. On the other hand, I am feeling optimistic about the results of this period. I think I'll actually be better off for it.
Organization is my theme for today (and the upcoming days). Google Calendar has always been a tool I use daily. It's being used even more. Now I am going back to budgeting, believe it or not! I am actually planning Christmas gifts as early as now, and I have been racking my brains for Mens Gift Ideas for Dad and Silas. Why is it always easier to get gifts for women? I do have a plan for Silas - a very early gift, if circumstances allow me.
Another thing I am doing in terms of getting organized is doing things outside of work. Last year, I started a personal project, which I dropped at some point. Today, I picked it up again. I paid a price for letting it go. The domain had expired without me checking it. I had to get a new one, together with a hosting plan. It is going to take some work, but believe me, I am very much looking forward to this. I have a feeling it is going to be one of the driving forces for me.
As for work, I am also doing much better in managing my time. The past days have reinforced my oft-repeated statement: as tired as I get from working at times, the more work I get done, the more fulfilled I feel.
I am not the most organized person I know - far from it, but I am quite positive about this!
