Searching For a New Job

I've always thought I had my career plan worked out.

I left school when I was young because I didn't enjoy the classes I was doing (My mistake was not paying enough attention enough in the classes that I did enjoy) and so I left eduction for full time employment in retail.
When I left I knew I couldn't simply do what I was doing and I knew I had to work up.
I made a plan in my head, and like most of you might do, if you have goal, you set a timeline to it as to what you want to achieve and by when.
What I hadn't considered, is that circumstances change. The company changed the progression process numerous times, where I worked and the kind of work I have been doing has changed and ultimately, my own sense of what I want to achieve has changed and what my values are now have changed.

Maybe the career plan I made 5 years ago needs a bit of a tweak.

I've always been one to aim for the stars. I know now that my decision to leave eduction was not the best, but I have le…

Step 1: The De-clutter

There are many different goals I want to achieve. Some very big, some very small.
I like to break my goals in to smaller little chunks to make them manageable.
One that I'm really looking forward to keeping up, is being more organised. I've always been one to believe that, if you keep everything around you tidy, you'll be keeping everything inside tidy too. Or as my driving instructor says "Clean car, clean drive". My problem is I've never been the best at keeping everything around me tidy.

yesterday, I cleaned the flat. Top to bottom. Today, was a slightly bigger job.
I've spent my day filing and clearing up paperwork. Now a lot of you might consider this as a lot of procrastination.
But I think getting rid of the little problems, frees your head up for the bigger ones.
It might seem like I've hid myself from my bigger goals, but I'm actually pretty proud of the job that I've done

It's one of the jobs that you put off and put off. The pap…

The Truth

I started this blog to help those with not a lot, live like they have everything.
I have little chunks of advice, from personal experience, but the more and more I read from other people. The more I see. The more I experience. The more I realise that I have so much more to learn, to get the luxury lifestyle.
I consider myself successful in any aspects of my life. I have a wonderful girlfriend, I own my own flat at the age of 22 and I can rather happily afford to live with a good quality of life. But there other aspects of my life where I consider myself less successful. My job isn't particularly fulfilling, I have quite a chunk of debt, I can't seem to pass a driving test to save my life and one of my best examples is this blog!
I've spent far too long about worrying what I'm going to write, what I'm going to talk about next, how I'm going to write it. I've done this worrying for too long.
Like the other aspects of my life, that I don't feel are as succ…
