Getting back on track

I'm my own worst enemy!

I have been out of work for a very long time. I'm afraid to pick up the phone to ask people about getting a job and apply for jobs posted online when I feel like it. Not very good! I can't get motivated until late in the morning.:-(

I've had a few interviews that went quite well and am waiting to hear back from one of them possibly today and the other one by the end of next week.:)

I live alone in my apartment and have had no personal contact with anyone other than phone calls since Sunday. I make sure I go out for a walk or a run every day so I can sleep better.

My goals for today:

- Call Pat re message for association

- Develop script and make 5 phone calls for jobs and meetings

- Spend 1 hour on LinkedIn, Twitter to let my contacts know what I'm doing and to update my profile

- Redo my resume for retail jobs

- Spend 3 hours doing volunteer newsletter

- email L regarding LI question

- wash 3 days worth of dishes :O

- Check in at the end of the day to report my progress

P.A. Thought for the Day

Fifth, I have learned to live one day at a time. I have finally realized the great fact that all I have is now. This sweeps away all vain regret and it makes my thoughts of the future free of fear. Now is mine. I can do what I want with it. I own it, for better or worse. What I do now, in this present moment, is what makes up my life. My whole life is only a succession of nows. I will take this moment, which has been given to me by the grace of God, and I will do something with it. What I do with each now will make me or break me. Am I living in the now?

Meditation for the Day

We should work at overcoming our selfish desires, our self-centeredness and ourselves. This can never be fully accomplished. We can never become entirely unselfish. But we can come to realize that we are not at the center of the universe and that everything does not revolve around us at the center. I am only one cell in a vast network of human cells. I can at least make the effort to conquer the self-life and seek daily to obtain more and more of this self-conquest. "He that overcomes himself is greater than he who conquers a city."

Prayer for the Day

I pray that I may strive to overcome my selfishness. I pray that I may achieve the right perspective of my position in the world.

Schedule for Today

My schedule:

Precalculus Mid-term Practice (30 min.)

Other HW (CHRLIF and PHY) (15-30 min.)

Sketch of the Day (30 min.)

Journey 10 am

Good morning!  Working from home today.   Yesterday was a real struggle but I did get some work done.   The morning was spent getting ready for a noon meeting, and after the meeting I was exhausted and freaked out and I goofed off for about an hour.   After that I recovered and got a good 3 hours or so of heads down work done.   

Today I am feeling rather more ambitious.   I've been to the gym, had a nice healthy breakfast and I'm making my todo list and having a big glass of water.  When that's done I can have a coffee break.   It will be easy to make to do list because I know I need to work on preparing for the next install of Big Project, and then spend an hour or two on the horrid documentation projects.

kromer 9:30 CI

Today is a rough day...I have lots of scheduled non-work stuff (comm ctr volunteering, which I'm not sure I want to continue with but where I at least want to go today, and a mtg to plan girls group, which I don't necessarily want to be involved in every week but where I want to help get it going). (going to this stuff now)

Also, I've promised to pray for a good friend and I haven't yet, so I want to take about 30 min and do that.

That doesn't leave as much time as I'd like for work stuff, unfortunately. I have a fellowship application due at the end of the week, so for that I want to get rough vocation, impact, and program essays done, and choose a work sample. (I've made some progress on this)

Then, I need to mail samples, image PAS sections and take notes, take notes from coupling and re-suspend probes, look into ES cells as control. (made some progress on this, but I'm not going to get these tasks done)

Luckily a lot of this stuff can be done from home, so I can do some work after I get home from girls group mtg.

OK, right now, going to go pray and work on essays.
