Once school and university finished then I became aimless. I had no clear career goals as I was following a legal path that I was totally ill equipped for and therefore never managed to enter that world. Was this because I did not try hard enough or simply self-sabotage because I did not want it? It has taken me until now to become clear about my total lack of career ambition and so I am stuck between a rock and a hard place in terms of finding suitable employment. Honestly, I just want to be a PA or an administrative officer, conference organiser or something in that bracket. My CV screams something different so I do not often get called for interviews. I will cover some of this under the J, jobs section.
Goals should be concrete, realistic and implementable with an end target. They can be small or large. They can be daily, weekly, monthly, yearly or more. But setting a timeframe is essential.
For the first time in my life at the beginning of 2012 I set myself a 6 month weight loss target to be achieved on my birthday and guess what? I got on the scales on my birthday and was exactly the weight that I had set out to reach. I wrote everything down daily that needed to be done to reach my target.
I have a friend who was a single Mum for a long time, but she was so focused that within a year she was in a committed relationship, had moved house, found a new job and had given birth to a gorgeous baby girl. Wow, that was some serious goal setting and success!
I still live in a romantic fantasy world so we do need to keep it real. Mind you now that Angelina has off loaded Brad, let’s see!!
