This weeks reflections (17.01.2014)

What pleasant surprises did I discover this week? One of my YouTube videos, from a while back, hit 5,500 views! I haven't paid much attention to my Youtube channel since my last upload as these videos are quite time consuming and having a full time job limits the opportunity to film. I randomly checked it this week and was surprised by how many people have seen the tutorial I did.

What lessons did my work teach me that I could build upon next week? I'm only human and to do lists are really important. It is impossible to remember everything all the time and keeping a to-do list saves my butt a lot of the time in my full time job as a Professional Assistant.

Are my short-term efforts and long-term goals still aligned? I need to define some long term goals to be able to deal with this question. Maybe next week?

What could I have spent more or less time doing? Preparing food! Last week I bought a crap load of fresh fruit, veg and meat for the month ahead. Seeing as Malcolm and I are only 2 people in the house (teenie tiny bachelor flat rather), a lot of the food has to go into the freezer so it can last longer. This meant tons of peeling, washing, chopping, repacking and portioning 20 freezer bags of food. This was unbelievably time consuming but at least it is done...until we buy more.

How did fear and uncertainty affect what I did and didn't do? This wasn't really an issue this week.

What mental clutter can I clear? Too many unorganized short term goals and guidelines. I have about 15 goals in my head all running at the same time. They often cross paths and contradict one another. I need to sort that shit out :)

What is the first logical step for next week? Don't put yourself down to boost someone elses ego...actually, don't put yourself down for any reason. IT shouldn't be done full stop :)

This was my weeks reflections. Share some of yours in the comments below or on Twitter. I am trying to get Malcolm to share his weekly reflections but guys don't really do that. I did however discuss these with him to give him food for thought.

Have a great weekend!
