Yes, what a word … Motivation.
It is time for me to become motivated to move, to shake the tree, to achieve my own personal goals, I just have to realise what those goals actually are however!
Goal one, is to generate income to pay the bills, so how to do this, what are my skillsets, where can I get paid?
Pay the bills, what a crappy goal that appears to be, but typical of yours truly ever the pragmatist I always have to think in practical terms first. Perhaps this is one of my skills?
A pragmatist – hmmm really .. let me see, a quick definition over at Google HQ
A pragmatist is someone who is pragmatic, that is to say, someone who is practical and focused on reaching a goal. A pragmatist usually has a straightforward, matter-of-fact approach and doesn’t let emotion distract her.
Well, apart from the ‘politically correct’ ‘her’ I am male! That would likely describe me perfectly, in particular the ‘not allowing emotion’ part.
So, a pragmatist I am … if that is a strength and it would appear to be, then surely all I need do to achieve my first goal of ‘paying the bills’ is to be pragmatic about it, so here goes, I will create a list.
- Pursue the new website idea (with Jake and Ashley)
- Buy the domain name discussed with Wally
- Consider Shane’ website as a project for Jake, or Kay
Three things for me to look at then, I will give them my full attention tomorrow, I should probably try and complete the job application I started over the weekend, that will take some thought as I am aiming high with that application!
So, I have just been in conversation with my fantastic life partner (wife) …. she is working I am sat here blogging! As a result I have just realised another goal and that is to find me a car, a very nice car … a couple of reasons for this, I recently sold my car so I have some funds to do it right now, another reason I need transport and the third my wife suggested I need to look the part … !
