I’ve been remiss in publishing blog entries here because I’ve been editing and revising the book proposal for the second nonfiction book I want to publish.
It’s a one-of-its-kind career guide. I will be able to tell you more about this in October.
October is Disability Employment Awareness Month.
Coming up in October I will return to writing about career topics.
As of tonight I’ll be returning to writing blog entries here.
What I’d like to start out writing about this week is a true story.
It goes back to my time working as an administrative assistant in an insurance office.
That was my first-ever full-time job after I stopped collecting government benefits.
I’m in the middle of getting my second non-fiction book ready to publish soon. I hope to be able to publish this book within two years from now.
For now I would like to talk again about goal-setting.
It’s going to be spring soon and I think new season is the perfect time to make changes.
To this end I’d like to recommend a book–Changeology–about setting and achieving goals.
It’s a 5-Step process that has been scientifically documented in research as being effective in getting results.
The only drawback I find to the book is that it focuses only on changing negative behaviors like smoking and drinking and bad parenting.
You CAN use the book to create other behavior changes that are positive. You just won’t find your particular behavior talked about in the book. Yet you can still use this proven 5-Step process to execute change.
Using this system might indeed help a person stop smoking or drinking or overeating or whatever their unproductive habit is.
I will continue to talk about goal-setting in here in the coming blog entries.
