Making Changes

With the new year around the corner. It always a good time to start focus on making changes in your life. Some people make unrealistic new year resolutions then are shocked when they don’t keep them. So start small. Here a few examples from my 2016 list. I wanted to have extra money to start taking acting classes and pay all my expenses.  I set on my calendar a   two weeks goal of when to start my new budget. Then I started adding up my monthly expenses and how much money I would need to pay my expenses along with how much money I would need to save . If you start by making small changes before you know you will be sticking to your goal/ budget.  Another example is  I wanted to have a more active lifestyle and maybe lose a few pounds. Start by looking for a gym or class you like. Then one day you wake up and realize dropped a few pounds. Another  example is I wanted to start a new job. A common resolution. I read an article that more than half of society hates their job. One way to achieve this goal is to start by signing up for all the job search engines or networking boards you are interesting in. Then start by upload or updating your profile. Then have a weekly goal of how many jobs you will apply for. In no time, you will be going to interviews that have the opportunity to land that new job. Don’t get to stuck in that new year , new me idea. Most people fail at their goals the first month or two of the new year. So, start small and by the time you know it you have achieved your goal. My goal for 2017 was to have money for a new car. I been working towards that goal day by day for almost a full year. I’ve finally checked on my status and learned that my goal has  a great chance of coming true in 2018 So I’ll have that new car or slightly used. My second goal was networking for a decent job. I worked a lot of shitty jobs this last year. I’ve even took a job just to have a job. I’m finally almost ready to quit that job.Focusing on my life goals. I  personally believe living life is more important than selling yourself for less than $15,000 a year. That salary alone should let you know I work multiple jobs to make a living. Stay focus , set small goals and work toward improving your life and achieving the big picture.

Don’t Forget To Take Time For You

eb03d74e3c6791e8f9e30c46c4f1cc20Realizing that life will move on without or with you is an important of growing up. Things in life will change. If you wrap yourself up in making money and not taking time for yourself. You will wake up one day and realize that things in others lives not just your own have changed. Twice this week, I have interesting conversations about what really matters in life. The answer will be different for different people but most of us agree that making money is only a temporary fix. Life is about enjoying yourself, educating yourself and making sure that you are in the moment. So never forget  to take time for yourself . Get out there make mistakes, live each day like its your last, have fun , cry , get mad and move on.

Sincerely,

A workaholic
