Time flies when you’re busy. Considering it has been over a month since I last posted and my life is in a sort of shambles, I think it’s time I get back on track with blogging and my self improvement goals.
The past month was filled with a two week-long vacation and business travel every other week. I have managed to let my goals slip in the name of exhaustion from excelling at work. Who says I can’t be successful at both life and work? Time management is all it takes.
Aside from maintaining my finances with a well-regulated budget and dividing cleaning tasks by day so they’re more manageable, I want to make a big change this month. Each month I set a goal and try to accomplish it. I make my password relevant to the goal, so it becomes a sort of mantra for my life that I repeat several times a day.
This month’s goal is to unplug, with the exception of my blog.
Jokes usually contain a nugget of truth, and more than a few people have made both jokes and straightforward comments on how often I am on my phone. And it’s true: I am glued to my phone. My problem is only exacerbated by the fact that my work revolves around social media.
It’s not just the comments though. I have noticed my personal relationships suffer from being on my phone when I should be spending time with my loved ones. It detracts from my quality of life. So November is no-phone-November for me.
By not using my phone in any free time, I will become more efficient as well as spend more quality time with others.
What do you want to change about yourself?
