Back-to-School Means Back-to-Work
I remember singing the song at the beginning of each summer break “School’s Out for the Summer!” With school back in session, we can all now get back to work. As a side note, my parents did a much better job of containing their glee the first week of school than I am able to do. My daughter graduated in May, so this is the first fall in sixteen years we aren’t going back to school. She’s taking a year off to figure out what she wants to do when she grows up, I hope she figures it out faster than I did! 🙂
If you didn’t have an incredibly productive summer, there’s no time to waste crying over spilled milk. Even if you did rock the Kasbah this summer, it’s up to you to seize the opportunities you have in front of you right now, and here are three quick ways to do just that:
Don’t just think it, ink it. It’s tempting to just “think” about our goals but to achieve them, you have to get them out of your head and on paper. Write down your top three goals, the BHAGs you might have set when you first read my book Vision to Reality, and recommit to their achievement. A quick review of your 2018 goals will help you to narrow down what you need to add to your 100-Day Plan so you can reach or exceed them.
Speaking of plans, do you have one? If not, go here and download a copy of my STMA 100 Day Plan (listed under Prosperity for Writers. You might also consider this (which comes to you with a 50% discount).
After a long lazy summer, your inner child may be resisting endless days of all work and no play. Pull out your calendar and schedule a few three-day weekends, and a mental health day or two for good measure. Your subconscious mind has to know that the light at the end of the time tunnel is not an oncoming train. It’s important to take regular breaks to rest, rejuvenate, and re-charge. When you know a break, a.k.a. a reward for a job well done is coming, you might not mind putting in extra hours.
Congratulations on getting the kids back to school, and successfully getting back to work.
