On work and being specific

I just had a pretty interesting conversation with Mark regarding work, life and getting things done.

He made me realize that whenever I think I’m being specific in my planning I am actually being very vague. As an example, I am currently working on developing Frivilligcenter Netvirket’s communication strategy. As that’s a relatively broad task I’ve started making daily and weekly to-do lists… only issue is they aren’t really to-do lists, they’re just statements of what I am working on – the communication strategy!

So basically I need to improve my ability to see the smaller tasks that make up the assignment. That’s apparently a lot harder for me than I thought but awareness is the first step.

Australian arrival

It’s been a while since I rerally posted anything but junk!

Lately I’ve been preoccupied with preparing to leave for Australia. For now I’ll be living in Australia for the next year with my girlfriend.

I’ve been here for about two weeks now and I’m slowly starting to settle into daily life. I still haven’t found a job though so that’s what I’ll be looking into next.

Until then I’m enjoying the Australian winter by running around in tshirt, shorts and flip-flops (or thongs as they call them down here). So far it’s been around 20-25˚C everyday and mostly sunny, so I’ve been slowly working on my tan. Great times!

Looking for work

After having worked in a temp job for roughly seven months I now only have two months left in the position. That mean I have to start looking for a new job. There’s just one small issue! My Aussie gf is going back to Oz end of June and I really, really wanna go too, but have decided to stay back in DK until October to pay off some uni-debt. But that means I need a job for about 3 months, and I can’t seem to find anything because of the short timespan! Bummer!

Work’s fun

Work’s quite fun… At least you’d think so as I’ve just spent the last 14 1/2 hours at work!

I had one of those extremely productive days where I managed to get more done than I usually would in a week, while still taking time out to socialize with one of the students at work. So all in all a pretty cool day :)
