Productive Productivity — My Week in Review
This might be one of my most productive weeks to date — ever.
The surprising thing is, at least to me, that I still don’t technically have a job.
I mean… I published 10 articles from last Thursday through this Thursday, 8 days.
I took and completed an online midterm, a paper, presentation, and the bulk of a project for another MBA class.
Along with those things, I made it to the gym 4 times in those 8 days also.
I finished an audiobook and 2 print books, though I had already begun them previously.
Finally, I followed up with some potential job opportunities, had a call with a mentor, an interview, and a career fair I attended.
The thing is, we could all do this.
What’s the priority?
My priority was growing myself.
Did I upset some people in the process? Probably. People probably wanted more of my time. But that’s okay, I wanted more of my time too.
While I wish I had a job right now, I have multiple lines in the water and even though some fish are biting, I haven’t reeled in the best one yet — I know that it’s coming and I’m ready.
I know that I can continue improving and getting better at what matters most to me. As I wrote about on Tuesday, it’s essential that we are able to decipher movement towards our goals from movement away from them.
The best way that I believe we can do that is to use a compass — God’s compass — without it, we may be working in haste without purpose.
I think that we can only be deemed productive when we know that we are doing things that contribute to our God-given goals and purposes.
