I'm very excited: last night my wife asked me to brainstorm my short-term goals and things to accomplish, so I pulled out my datebook and allotted some hours to each of these tasks. I now have a clear list of things to do today, how long I get to do them, and still have time to clean the house, play video games (a little), play with the cats before I catch the bus to go to class.
Ideally, by the end of the day I will have applied for a couple more jobs, submitted two queries to local papers, read three chapters from my textbooks, and hacked out a Hallowe'en-themed short story. I'm very excited about this, needless to say.
I work best off of lists. Even if I don't accomplish every single item on a list, I always achieve more than half of them. I work best with that focus, that reminder to keep me on track. I'm grateful to Rebecca for helping me stay focused. Today's going to be an illustrious day for me.
