My struggles for this week as
always have been time. I wrote in my
last blog that I need to stop procrastinating.
This week I’ve really watched the time I’ve spent being non productive
and it wasn’t much. I just didn’t have
the time to study this week. I’m
starting to feel very anxious and stressed out about the exam. I’m hoping that my next blog entry is all
about how far I’ve gotten and how I’m back on track.
My biggest struggle right now is
that I feel like I am pulled in so many different directions. I feel like I am expected to give everyone in
my life 100 percent of my time leaving no time to do what I need to do. Adding to the stress is the holidays. Just when I think I have everything done and
I can finally focus on the CTP exam I’m asked to do something else. If I’m not able to do exactly what I’m asked
to do then I get an attitude from the family member that asked. No one seems to understand that my life is
very busy and I don’t have time to get together for dinner at a moments noticed
just because they have the time.
As those of you who work in retail
know, December and January are very busy.
We are getting ready to close the year in January and all the
preparation begins in December. Luckily,
I have still made the time on Friday afternoon to study.
Three weeks have gone by since I
said I was going to start studying 3 hours a week and I’ve only gotten in an
hour per week. I hope that those of you
who read my blog are seeing the importance of putting yourself on a schedule and
sticking to it. My school semester
starts again the third week of January and I need to have a good handle on the
CTP material by that time.
I planned on spending a good amount
of time this weekend and my daughter decided to refuse her nap so I didn’t get
the time to study. Next weekend is
Christmas and we have plans every night.
I would love to get advise from someone as to how to balance family,
work, and studying the enormous body of knowledge such as the CTP exam book.
