I suddenly realise what exactly is the task I have taken upon myself. Can I really find something about my day to talk about at the end of it? Well I’m going to try really hard so let’s see how that works out. Today I made two important discoveries and while these were discovered during the pursuit of GMAT prep, they were technically more, shall we say: life related.
The first was that I have spent the last 2 days feeling oh so happy about the fact that I have taken the time off from work and how I have much more control over my time now and how organized my study schedule is. But is that really the case? Let’s face it, being at home brings it’s own distractions, it’s just the way you look at it that makes you handle things or throw up your hands in frustration! Hence, the realisation that I can plan my schedule at work too and then handle the distractions (mostly labelled ‘urgent’) as they come without losing sight of the overall goal to be achieved.
The second is actually funny. I’ve always had a strange passive resistance to change. I may have become adept at accepting change but I’ve never actively embraced any change; it has sort of become part of my life over time and then it’s the norm once again. But today I realised that I’m actively following a study schedule and format that is the absolute opposite of what I have done all my school life! In fact I didn’t even realise it until a friend pointed it out but strangely I am perfectly comfortable and in fact enjoying this process! Not to say I didn’t enjoy my earlier process but so far this works too! Well as they say, the proof of the pudding is in the eating!
Until then, Cheers!
