I don’t have a complicated plan today. It’s unusual. I put up my socks after get dress. Those even different as a pair of socks. Well, it means I have such “even close” pairs of socks. Hop, I get the pair of one. Ha-ha, the socks could never be alone! I wear them with clear smile.
It’s still cold outside. I’m now idle. It’s been a week I don’t check if there’s a job vacancy suited my skills, education background and working experience. I really want to check it, but I don’t know why I’m getting lazy this way.
These are the practice of time management I’ve read. I don’t even think to do those as complete as this suggestion. Let’s call it improvisation! As it’s said. Practice the following techniques to become the master of your own time:
- Carry a schedule and record all your thoughts, conversations and activities for a week.
- Have a time assigned to it. To-do lists get longer and longer to the point where they're unworkable. Appointment books work. Schedule appointments with yourself and create time blocks for high-priority thoughts, conversations, and actions. Schedule when they will begin and end.
- Plan to spend at least 50 percent of your time engaged in the thoughts, activities and conversations that produce most of your results.
- Schedule time for interruptions. Plan time to be pulled away from what you're doing.
- Take the first 30 minutes of every day to plan your day and complete it.
- Take five minutes before every call and task to decide what result you want to attain.
- Put up a "Do not disturb" sign when you absolutely have to get work done.
- Practice not answering the phone just because it's ringing and e-mails just because they show up.
- Block out other distractions like facebook and other forms of social media unless you use these tools to generate business.
- Remember that it's impossible to get everything done. Also remember that odds are good that 20 percent of your thoughts, conversations and activities produce 80 percent of your results.
Let me check if I can do several points of this suggestion! Who knows it could be an important direction? Point 1, absolutely yes. Point 2, could be a little bothering, then I will work it out. Point 3, could be a hush thing if I get job from a very fast paced, high-pressured working environment. Point 4, I just want to spend it for “me time” and “coffee break”. Point 5, absolutely yes. Point 6, it’s alright. I could still handle it with email account or instant message. Point 7, yeah … I wish everyone around could tolerate it. It might take just three hours to have it. Point 8, phonecall or email from the clients are important. Others can wait. Point 9, this is the one I should think more than twice. Finally, point 10, I don’t mind to think more than 20 percent and hopefully, the results are close to 80 percent.
It’s now 12.58 pm. I still don’t have any idea what I’m going to have for lunch. Rice and scramble eggs? It’s pretty good. No longer, I’ll take those ones. I stepped my feet on the bridge. I met a fundraiser.
“Sista, could I ask you a little question?” asked him.
“Yeah, sure!” responded me.
“Do you agree that we should care about Orang Utan’s extinction?” asked him more.
“Yeah, I agree. It’s now rare,” answered me.
“We just need your sign here to support our fundraising. Would you, please sign here?” asked him.
“Yeah, sure! Bless it!” responded me.
I signed his paper filled of signatures. He said thank you. I continued walking on by. It’s good to do the job I like, but the most important thing is to be happy, as what the fundraiser do. I scream quietly. None is around me. Sure, I cared about Orang Utan’s extinction and cared more about human life.There are several interested industries that I really want to get in and work with their teamwork. Or still have to work alone? Let’s mention! IT, telecommunication and printed media. Is there still any open possibility to get there? Yeah, I’m in front of the notebook. I’m looking for job vacancies from internet. I’ll let my mind go with that “giant willingness”. None can resist it.
