Happy Tuesday everyone! (not that there’s anything to be happy about on a Tuesday).
Anyway…today I’ve had another bright idea for my fancy notebook. On my way into work this morning I was thinking how great it would be to show my kids in the future this notebook and see how much I have achieved between now and then, (hopefully a lot of it).
Why is it so important to write things down? Reflection…simple. If we aren’t able to look back at our goals and see what we need to improve or do to achieve them then how will we succeed?
For me, my organisation skills were a bit scarce and I quite often would start something and quit half way through (anyone else?). I don’t actually know why, maybe I get bored easily, maybe these ideas weren’t meant to be or maybe I just wasn’t good enough at the time. However, since starting my work placement, I feel like I have acquired new life skills and technical skills within my job which is an achievement in itself. Before this year I hadn’t really thought about achieving anything outside of a 9-5 job. Before this year I had never looked at what my full potential could be if I really put in 100%. Most of all, before this year I have never owned a personal notebook. I treat this notebook like my phone (sad I know), but if I don’t then I’ll revert to my old ways and to me, that is key!
Moral: Always think about the future by thinking about the past.
