What better way to start a new month than with a little nod to the Counting Crows?
As it happens, it is now August and I am starting to look ahead at what comes next. There are things in my life I am not happy with, mainly myself. So, I need to start making some changes.
Time management has always been a bad habit of mine, meaning I am horrible at it. Being active for a writer with introverted tendencies is also a challenge.
So, for the rest of the year, I want to make some personal changes. I will once again refer to my writings on being active and staying productive, as well as my tomes on writing that I have penned in the past. I will work on a lot of things, and I will slowly see myself emerge.
Work is one thing I want to change. Once again, I find myself stuck in that mode where I am ready to work less and earn more.
To do that, I need to offer more value for my services, change my game plan and start being a little more proactive. My goal: Over the next 3 months I want to increase my income by an additional 50% of what I earn now, while not increasing my work load.
The 3 months following that, I want to maintain the level of income (though increases are welcomed) while lowering the amount of work I must do.
Combined with the personal changes, the career changes will be a bit more difficult. I also want to finish up some projects, and look forward to the next big projects on my goals lists.
Hopefully soon, I can begin something new and fresh and get excited about that, as well.
I suppose the Counting Crows had it right. I know what I need to do.
Walk in the air, between the rain, through myself and back again. Where? I don’t know.
