As of yesterday, I am currently unemployed. I did not see this as a completely negative experience, but more of an opportunity of epic proportions.
What am I going to do?
Well, that’s a hard and vast subject of inquiry. I’m not really sure what is going to happen over the next month or so in regards to work. I still have a check coming from the last job, and Myriah still has her job, so we should be OK while I take the time to put myself out in the work arena once again.
What am I not going to do?
I’m not going to give up. In the past, it was easy for me to just take these things to heart and not learn from my experiences. Well, I’m really trying to change my outlook on life, as well as my organizational skills, my productivity habits and my general thought processes. There is no need for me to go back to the ways that I have been living over the past couple of years. In fact, it would be completely counter-productive to do so. That’s not what the person I am trying to be is like.
What am I doing in the mean time?
As mentioned before, I am just getting started changing my habits in the ways of Getting Things Done. This wide-open work situation is really a very good thing for me at this point of my habit-changing. Over the next couple of days, I have a lot of work to do if I want to get myself into a position of personal productivity. It’s been a long time since I’ve even attempted to use some form of personal manager to oversee my work and home life, so it’s really about darn time that I get started.
What does all this mean?
This all means a lot of things. You may end up hearing a lot more from me in the coming days, weeks and months, as I attempt to put things into perspective for myself and really try to dig in and Get Things Done.
I have been neglecting too many of my personal as well as freelance projects to the point where work on them has practically stopped. I expect, with the new-found organizational skills, to be able to get back on the horse with the Overneath Project. These stories are living organisms that have been trying to get out and breathe in the real world for way too long.
Also, look forward to my web presence becoming slightly more serious as I start to try to find some good connections for the work ahead of me. Thanks for sticking around for this uninteresting personal description, it is greatly appreciated.
