52 Tiny Changes
You've done it before. Tried to change your whole life in 30
days. Only to fizzle out at day 10 because it take too much time.
Join me in making a small change each week and by the end of the
year you will have made 52 improvements to your life!
with 52 changes in the subject line. Or come here each week for
a new change and some steps to help you along the way.
Tiny Change #23: Subscribe to a magazine related to
your work and schedule time to read it
This week's habit is about life long improvement with your
work skills. Too many people quit learning as an adult and try
to get along with the status quo. But, too little challenge
can make you bored. You certainly don't find excitment doing
the same old thing, the same old way.
You can gain knowledge by subscribing to a magazine. I still
get Mac Design even though graphic design is more of a sideline
now. I love to learn new things and want to keep my skills up.
If you prefer books, find out the best new books for your field.
Or you can read more general ones on business, marketing, or
personal growth. And if you are choosing to stay home with kids
now, you don't get out of this one. You can read books on child-rearing,
housekeeping, or magazines to keep you up-to-date with the area
you might want to return to one day.
Seminars, tele-classes, and web sites are also fantastic ways
to improve your skills. The more you know of your work, the
better, faster, and easier you can accomplish your tasks.
Now you need to schedule some reading time in. Some experts
say at least 20 minutes a day. I like to read improvement books
during lunch time. Then before bed I read some novels, inspirational
reading or a magazine to help relax me for sleep. Pick a time
that works best for you, even if it is just once a week.
