Starting to rely on myself

Last week, I wrote how I have begun to feel that I can start relying on myself.

An example of this is that I am blogging this week in spite of being booked for a late night of Thursday working for one of my employer’s larger clients.  This might not sound much of an achievement.  However, it was late night working for this same client during the course of last year which first interrupted my regular weekly blogging as a few of the jobs for them were on a Thursday night which, at that time was my routine blogging evening.

I’m starting to rely on myself as I am starting to manage my time a lot better.

One thing that has really helped is to stop focusing on end goals.

Traditional goal setting was not working for me.  I found that setting a goal meant that I drifted away before reaching a goal post.

Now I have found that creating a daily routine which will help me work towards my aims is working.  My goals now are to complete my daily routine items for ten consecutive days and I reward myself each time i achieve this.

I am finding myself getting healthier, dealing with emails and paperwork, studying towards a qualification, doing things around the house and more.

I didn’t think of this myself but read about it on this blog post by this blogger James Clear.

I’m starting to believe that I can do some of those things that I wished I was capable of but never believed in myself enough to achieve them.

Hopefully, in the years to come, you will share in my success.

I hope to share in all of your successes, too.
