It's important to set goals for yourself and then measure your performance against those goals. Is this not how we grow?
I had a goal to be in bed by 11. It's 11:29. In order to be in bed by 11, I had to complete all of my homework and write my Leadership report. I have two sentences done on the Leadership report and none of my corporate finance read. Luckily, the report is only a page, and I think I'm far enough in the corporate finance chapter that he won't lecture past what I've read tomorrow; therefore, I should make it to bed before midnightish. All I want in life is to go to bed before 3 AM just one night. Just one. I feel the waking up at 7 won't be as painful then.
That is all...I set goals....I fail....The recession sucks!
(yes, I did just blame my inability to achieve goals on the recession. no, it isn't logical. don't worry about it.)
