In which I answer “What do I think should be improved?”.
As I continue this challenge as a personal journey for self-actualization, I will focus on what I think should be improved in myself from a professional standpoint. This could be uncomfortable, I suppose. If I acknowledge that something should be improved, I will have to take ownership of actually improving it. If I haven’t already addressed it, it’s probably something I didn’t really want to deal with anyway.
Hmmmm. always improvement needed, in many areas, I suppose. Which one will I own up to here?
I will go with time-management My friend, Tamara Myles, has taught me that time-management is actually choice-management. She states that we all have exactly the same amount of time each day. It’s how we choose to use our time that is the important thing. So, I will have to edit my statement to say that I probably should work on fine-tuning my choice-management.
I think I like to think that I am a wonderful multi-tasker. Fact is, at the end of the day, I am not always exactly certain that I accomplished as much as I thought I would or should. On the other hand, free-forming through my day does bring me to some interesting places. I think it must be my constant quest for knowledge that brings me to so many different sources of information. That’s probably how I ended up as a social media professional after all. In addition to wanting to connect people to other people and their services, I want to know everything that’s going on – all of the time.
Again, in keeping with my intent for this exercise, I will set my intention to improving my choice management to result in better time management. I believe that this will help me to feel in control of the direction that my work will take me.
Thank you, #YourTurnChallenge – Seth Godin and Winnie Kao. This challenge has been quite valuable to me so far. Taking a few minutes each day to review where I am and where I want to be is helping me to set lasting intentions.
