Change if you dare

Today wraps up the tenth day of a nice little extended week of rest, yet how nice it would be to have more days of doing what I want, when I want.

Sleep-ins are quite a luxury, as are late nights which are made possible by those sleep-ins. I do my best stuff in the hours after sunset and I will never be the happy early riser.

Here it 2014 Vision

After realising that I had been slow in getting my vision board together for 2014, I decided I better get moving. The idea of a vision board kind of fits nicely with the learning from the Strategic Management section of my MBA.

How can a business achieve success without a vision for the future, same too, how can I achieve success without a vision for my future. Amazing things happened in 2013 because I believed in myself and took a leap of faith. I believed that I could do better.

Flashes of Inspiration

I love reading anything which helps me be a better me or which helps me better understand me and why I do the things I do. Along with that, every now and again you come across something that provides that flash of inspiration and just makes everything make sense.

James Clear makes everything make sense, or contributes to it making better sense. I was reading something the other day on Facebook, can't remember what (yes for all its time wasting tendencies there are some really good things to be discovered on there) and a reference was made to James.

Believing works...

I've been doing some work on my website today, in between studying for a Strategic Management exam - that was me having to intersperse the 'want to do' with the 'need to do'.

Anyway in the process of doing some of the web design work I was going through my files and I found my vision board that I put together in early 2013 and I was amazed at how much on that board has actually eventuated.

Memories of childhood and chocolate

Easter is another reminder that my babies aren't babies any more. My favourite part of Easter used to be running around on a Saturday night after the boys had all gone to bed and setting up their Easter hunt.

Little pictures of household items which took them all over the house and outside searching until they finally found their eggs. It's an Easter hunt tradition that my parents did for my brother and I, and was a tradition which I continued for my boys all through the years of their childhood.

Brain Pain

First assignment for MBA is completed and emailed and my brain hurts. A 2726 word business analysis of my organisation for the Strategic Management module.

That's 226 words more than the word count calls for, but just within the 10% more or less allowance - so yes I've always had problems with knowing when to shut up.

Four letter words - there's a few

Roughly two months ago I wrote a post called "Procrastination is a four letter word" well so to is spam (a four letter word that is) because in eight weeks I've had 3303 comments on that post, 99% of which are spam.

As a result I will be putting tighter controls on commenting to prevent 'anonymous' comments - apologies if that is painful for any of you who do normally comment. I would recommend befriending me on Facebook if you want to comment on my blog hassle free.
