I’m two weeks into my new job which is full of new responsibilities and as much as I’m excited to be getting into my new role, I am also very overwhelmed. Yes, it’s only been two weeks but I already have a lot of work on my plate. Of course it’s going to take some time to get into this new work flow and no I’m not going to be able learn everything at the snap of a finger, but I feel this new position is going to take up most of my time. With that being said I have a list of goals I want to have accomplished by next year and I feel with this job some may need to be postponed.
The objective here is not to totally wipe out all my goals but to come up with a way to reach them in a manner that works with my new work life. I’ve come up with a list that may help me still be able to achieve my goals …
Evaluate each goal and rate them based on which goals will take the least & most time.
Take at least 2 days out of the week and work on one of my goals for at least 2 hours.
Break down my bigger goals into smaller goals.
I don’t know if postponing will necessary be bad but well definitely see. What do you think?
I have been thinking a lot about the future, mostly concentrating on my career. I was talking to a friend of mine this week about careers and I told her what I dream about every day: working on my MA website fulltime after university.
The thought of working for someone else after Oct 2009 is something I know I have to do to earn ends meet and pay off my credit card. Having said that, the simple thought of writing job applications for another company at this moment chills me blood freezing.
But again, I know I have to do it.
But my dream lies in being an online publisher. That’s what I want to do and with my MA project, I am making those steps. I am making money cold calls, sending cold emails to people, trying to get anyone to speak to me. I am finding it very difficult and just got rejected today for an interview request with a PR entrepreneur under the premise that they are ‘too busy’.
I was disappointed because I am trying. But I know I have to be resilient if I want to be my own boss.
I will be chronicling more of my MA project trials and tribulations on the blog. It’s the only outlet I have as I don’t want to bombard my mum with 10 emails a day.
Do you have any entrepreneurial dreams? What are your career dreams? Please tell me.
