I’m Moving On

Posted on Posted in Career Direction, productivity, work

Full disclosure: I am a notorious over-thinker.  If there are worst-case-scenarios to be imagined, I’m your man.  Experts…either real or self-anointed…have stated that this is neither wise nor healthy.  It is better to keep certain aspects and issues compartmentalized, and keep moving on.

The problem with someone like me (what…there’s only one?) is that being as anal-retentive as I am, I’d need to organize those compartments…stopping just short of sticking Dymo labels on each (are those even still a “thing”?).  And thusly, I would begin to over-think.

This recent article, from The Ladders, is all about letting go, moving on, moving FORWARD, and deleting specific parts of your day to day in order to become more productive and, probably, healthier.  I’ve read the list (hell, it’s only FIVE things you need to delete from your life) and am pleased and proud to say that I’m pretty good on at least three of the items mentioned.

Trust me: you’ll never find me on fleek.  I am pretty much the anti-fleek.

Nobody’s perfect…I’ve tried and failed.  Chances are I’m going to keep trying.  All without cliches and emojis…or even hackneyed closings to emails (that’s not on the list, but PLEASE…don’t include those…that’s a personal request!).

You tell me: what else can be deleted from your day (aside from reading my blogs)?

And when’s the last time you listened to Hank Snow?  Oh…this was the first?
