My unexpected illness put me behind with much of my work. I have so much to do in the next four weeks.
- I am going to Chi-town next week for training with Major Law Accreditation body. My legal program is seeking the blessing of the Major Law Accreditation Body so that we can be included in the very small group of undergraduate programs in my state that have this designation. This is a HUGE deal, almost akin to a college receiving it's own regional accreditation. One huge bonus is that I am planning on meeting up with one of you!
- I have a major paper and presentation that is due at the end of the month. This is part of specialized leadership training that I've been participating in for the past year. I am about halfway through right now.
- Registration has started for next term. That means long days advising students.
- There are only three weeks left in the term. Lots of back grading to complete.
See, when I have a plan, I can keep those negative, overwhelming thoughts at bay. I know what I need to do and how much time it should take me to do it, allowing some leeway for when those creative juices start flowing or I get into that groove and don't want to quit. In the end, I feel accomplished and satisfied.
Sounds like a plan.
