My Rocks are in a Row

Posted on: June 20, 2008

A while back I wrote about My Big Rocks, inspired by Stephen Covey in First Things First, and Leo at Zen Habits.

This week I accomplished a huge goal: I got a new job!

I’ve been working at a job for two years that’s been making me miserable, anxious and depressed. I spent a lot of time trying to figure out why, then decided I needed to focus more on just making a change. I was in the middle of interviewing life coaches, when a friend sent me a job announcement she thought I’d be interested in – and I got the job!

I’m so thrilled. It’s a wonderful organization that raises money to improve the public schools in our area – a cause near and dear to my heart.

This really kills two rocks with one stone (mixed-up metaphor there); not only did I find a more satisfying and challenging job, but I won’t have to force myself to work anymore – I might even look forward to it! So . . . my third rock is still my decluttering and organizing quest, and while I’ve made decent progress there, there’s plenty more to be done! I hope that this new beginning will give me even more energy for my journey to order, serenity and peace of mind.

Oh! Awesome news! Congratulations, you must be over the moon. How exciting to be able to look forward to a job you can actually enjoy. Update us on how it goes!

Congrats on the new job. I am SO happy for you!

There’s nothing worse than having to show up every day at a job you don’t enjoy. It’s so great that you got a new job and in an area that’s important to you!

Thanks everyone! I was feeling like my previous job was literally sucking the life out of me . . . this job is not only more interesting, but I’ll be working with interesting and congenial women – I feel very lucky!

Congratulations Ann,

That’s great news on your new job. It sounds like a fantastic opportunity for a great cause. With your enthusiasm, you’ll do great.

Thanks Barbara!

Congratulations! And I like the mixed metaphor – it is so appropriate for us out of the box cluttery ADD creative types.


Thanks Biscuitx! I like thinking of myself as a “creative type”!
