May 2018 may have been one of my most productive months ever. As in ever ever!! My wee family went on a holiday in April. Just a week to get away from day to day life and to see a bit of sun. During the holiday I reflected on all the things that I was putting on the long finger. Procrastination has always been a good friend of mine. It included regular mundane things like booking an eye test and the dentist to applying for a course. The kind of jobs where you think ‘I must do that’ and completely forget about it again till a few weeks later. And so on and so forth.
But no, not this time. May has been the month that I got shit done 🙂 Eye Examination (18 months overdue) – check. Dentist and hygienist – check. Apply for module for postgrad – check. I also attended a course specific to my area of work. Training – Check. Vegetarian – check. I decided to try being vegetarian whilst on holiday. Again it was something I thought about many times but never really tried. I’m not a big red meat eater anyway but I gave it a go for the month. I’m still a little undecided of the pros/cons for myself personally at this stage.
And last but not least I started my blog. I’m taking my time to decide where I am going with it. But I started. One step at a time.
For some time I have been listening to motivational speakers, reading books (none in May……..I couldn’t squeeze another thing into the month!!). It was from these books that I decided to quit making excuses. Get it done. Here is to the rest of 2018 being as productive. Who needs new years resolutions, start today.
