Have you ever thought, "I'll get to that later" or "I'm too tired from my day to do that"? This can very likely be what you are feeling when looking for a new job. Looking for a new job, especially when you are already working is time consuming. Even with the job alerts you have (hopefully) set up, it takes time filling out all those applications. If you are truly ready for a change you need to commit to doing this work every day.
As part of Natalie Sisson's 10 day blog challenge is to identify one thing that we will do every day for the next 30 days to help expel procrastination. Maybe you could make that commitment for your job search? Every day, make a commitment to yourself to apply for at least two jobs that interest you every day. The more companies you apply to, the greater your chances to be contacted!
Let me tell you about what I chose for my 30 day procrastination blocker! So first of all I totally procrastinated writing this post! Yesterday was my dad's 60th birthday so we took him to dinner and I didn't get home until after 11pm. I was exhausted and put it off. My bad. But here I am getting it done now :). What I decided I wanted to commit to was writing every day for the next 30 days. Whether it is a blog post on my site, writing for a client, or working on the eBook I want to create, I will write every day.
I have heard writing every day will help you become a better writer from just about every source I find valuable. So what has stopped me? Absolutely nothing but my own procrastination! So starting today, every day for the next 30 days, I will write at least 200 words every day. Have a topic you want me to write about? Send it to me in the form below!
