No working from home.....whoops

Tuesday, May 27, 2014

Confession time! I brought work home!! NOooooOOoooo!

I work at a school where "No Excuses" is our policy...

BUT....I really did have to bring some work home. The wildfires of San Diego meant that school was closed for 2 days, and thus I got behind. I am not far enough ahead in my days yet. Which leads me to my next point...I will do better the next time around!

 Sometimes we are not going to succeed. The point is I tried. Even better, I did pretty well! Since April I have only completed 2 reports/IEPs from home. For me that's a huge improvement. While I was not at the level of 0% work from home. I am not sure that's even possible as if I am not working from home I am then staying late (not good either). I am not going to give up trying to keep work at work. I am also going to carefully look at my year next year, make a better schedule and tell people when I need help!

I am also a happier person when I don't focus so much on the SLP side of myself.

Again I think the most important part is BALANCE.
 Ain't that the truth!? 

I thrive on stress, but that doesn't mean I should. I have a hard time with quiet, sitting still and waiting. I had a teacher with me the other morning, waiting for a parent. She observed me whirling and swirling around my office getting things done and she actually said aloud, "Woah! You are busy!" Uh-oh am I that bad!?

I need to learn to slow down, think and plan better. If I don't I fear I will burn-out. My goal in the coming year is to really stop, plan and ask for help when needed. If I slow down, I might actually be more productive and happier. Not everything is an emergency.

  5. You can make $20 for filling a 20 minute survey!

    Guess what? This is exactly what big companies are paying for. They need to know what their average customer needs and wants. So big companies pay millions of dollars per month to the average person. In return, the average person, myself included, participates in surveys and gives them their opinion.
