Andi Fisher over at Misadventures with Andi has done it again. She’s introduced another blog post format that I just love. Here’s the first one that I wrote about. This new one focuses on how you currently spend your time. So I decided to give it a try.
Watching: Mr. Bartender and I are loving “Death in Paradise.” We just discovered the show and are watching past episodes.
I’m also excited about the return of Mystery Science Theater 3000 (aka MST3K.) Their Kickstarter campaign has reached its first goal and working on stretch goals. We enjoyed the show years ago. Can’t wait!
Reading: “No Experience Necessary” by Chef Norman Van Aken. I interviewed Chef Norman several years ago – you can check it out here. If you’re a foodie, it’s a good read about working your way up the career ladder.
Working On: A new book! Yes, I’m working on book number two. Scheduled to come out next year. Look for details in the near future…
Feeling: Excited and stressed! But it’s all good.
Planning: Oh gosh, I’m always planning something. But one thing that I’m already starting to think about is the 2016 SHRM Annual Conference & Expo in Washington D.C. It’s a great city and I need to find a good burger. If you have a suggestion, be sure to let me know. Oh and I just found out that I’m speaking!
Loving: That I splurged on the new iPad Pro. It should be here any day. While I don’t expect it to replace a laptop, I’m hoping it will come close. Maybe I’ll write a post about it.
My Favorite Photo: Mr. B and I vacationed this year in Mexico. I took this photo using Hipstamatic. I think it’s my fave vacation photo.
One of the things I really enjoyed about this post was the exercise of stopping, thinking and focusing. Life can just whiz by. I can see this as being an activity you could do on your own privately in a journal or publicly on a platform like LinkedIn. Maybe even an opportunity to share with others in a one-on-one meeting how you currently spend your time.
It’s important to take time to think about how you currently spend your time. Then ask yourself if the list is what you want to be spending your time doing?
