Some days

Some days just never get started right. Colorado went to daylight savings time this weekend, and that just seemed to throw everything off. And that was good. When everything is thrown off, you sometimes find the time or at least a different view to consider what you really want to do.

My Alexa made sure to wake me up at my usual 5 o’clock. Only this 5 o’clock was really 4 a.m. within my mind. I had just lost an hour of sleep. I spent the rest of the morning dozing between the Sunday morning shows and trying to get myself together.

With my schedule in disarray, I carved time to do the one thing I’ve been trying to do. I set my goals for the rest of the year. Not down to the minutia level, instead on an overall view of the plan at 30,000 feet.

You may not think that is something significant; however, for me, I can now look at one sheet of paper and know exactly what I should be focusing on and where I should be. When there is any doubt to be cast, the sheet tells me whether I should focus on the one thing I’m thinking about or focusing on something within my scope for that month.

Did you ever find yourself doing things you really didn’t plan to do, and when you did, what did you do about it?

A retired Air Force Master Sergeant, Mike used to lay in bed at night and worry about what would happen if his plant closed or found himself without a job. One day his plant closed. Rather than panic and hysteria (OK, maybe a little) Mike found himself carried away on the adventure of his life. Mike started with the best job he ever had working at Home Depot. He spent 8 years working with job seekers at a local workforce center, helping them to find employment. He then started his own company developing courses, writing books and urging others to follow their own paths into the future. Mike holds a Master of Arts in Adult Education and Training and a Bachelor of Business Management, earned through the University of Phoenix and an AAS degree in Electronics Systems Technology from the Community College of the Air Force. Mike is a member of the Delta Mu Delta Business Honor Society.
