To me, work is like long-distance running: you set your sites on reaching the next landmark, while keeping the final destination in mind. Every goal-oriented project has steps. “A” leads to “B,” which leads to “C.”
I decided to “buckle down” and work on my proposal. I have been working on it, but not very regularly. I need to finish in order to continue with my thesis and graduate. I also have midterms coming soon, and I only read some of the material for one of my two classes–mostly because I am either working on my proposal, working on other projects for classes, teaching, or partying. (Yes, I admit to having a good time.) So far, things seem to be going well. I am also working out regularly again. The cold and wet weather put a damper on my desire to go outside. I didn’t even want to travel to the gym to work out. (I had some personal issues to resolve. Taking care of those seems to have helped, too.)
I plan to continue working today until my proposal is ready to be printed again, hopefully for its last revision.
