Do you know I have not even logged into WordPress for almost two weeks. Now that’s a sure fire sign that my life is swaying to the hectic side of the pendulum. As you know, I’m not a big fan of busy. I much prefer a slow ‘mooching’ approach to life. But that said it’s generally during the busy phases that things really start to happen.
A couple of days ago I was offered work with one of Ballarat’s local conference and accommodation centres, as their assistant marketing officer. Well using the word “offered” might be minimising the process slightly. I actually
endured attended three interviews and used up more than my fair share of ‘sparkle power’ to make that ‘offer’ happen. Regardless thou I am well pleased with the outcome. Starting from mid next week I’ll be spending two six-hour days a week working back in the real world and flexing my marketing and social media muscle. In my imagination, this is going to be like having best of both worlds. Three days a week at home focusing on my Caz Filmer Writes projects ( and doing housework, family stuff, and getting back to the renovations) and two days out working in the real world. Now, if we could all just come together with prayer and fasting in the hope that this turns out as well in reality as I’m picturing it in my mind.
While all this has been percolating around in the world of possibilities I also had two interviews for a project management job, which apparently I didn’t get. But how could I know this as they chose not to notify unsuccessful applicants – even though we dragged our sorry arses in there twice! Are you hearing my attitude? Sorry – but I think that’s rude. After all a phone call doesn’t take long or cost much. (Hashtag Grrrrr). And just to keep it interesting I also got offered six days emergency administration work at the girls school. I’ve never worked in a school before and despite thinking we needed to evacuate the first time I heard the bell go off, I loved it. It’s been a while (read many many years) since I’ve done pure admin/reception work and I have to admit I kinda felt like I was playing a huge game of pretend. How could you not love doing that?
In my own true introverted style thou, right now I am in desperate need of some time to some time to settle back and reflect, ponder and plan. (And if I didn’t have a family and home and I’m pretty sure I’d find that time.) I want to think this through and establish a routine for my working days – both at work and at home. One thing I have realised is that I need to put some boundaries ar
I want to be more purposeful than that.
I need to be more purposeful than that.
I am going to be more purposeful than that.
How do I become more purposeful than that?
