This is part of a goal-setting series I created. I found pictures on Pintrest that represented what I would like to see in a perfect day- the idea is to find a way to make this lifestyle a reality in the future. This first one is “An Ideal Day: At Work.” The name is self explanatory, it is what I would like to see an average good day look like that requires me to work for a living. I would be interested to hear suggestions people have on what, exactly, this kind of work could be labeled as or where to find it.
9:15 AM I wake up a little before my alarm goes off and stretch. I can hear the fall of rain outside my window.
9: 30 AM I put on my slippers and go to the bathroom- brush teeth, hair, contacts in and meds taken. Smile at the bathroom mirror because I know it is going to be a good day. I pour some juice, heat up some sausages and toast some bread, smearing cream cheese on it.
10 AM After breakfast I do ten minutes of yoga and get dressed for the day.
10:30 AM I have my clothes laid out ahead of time from the night before. They are tailored and form fitting but colorful and still playful.
10:40 AM As I drive to work, I play some fun music and find myself singing along to it. I have grabbed the lunch I made the night before out of the refrigerator before I hit the road.
11 AM I get to work a few minutes early, settle into my desk and start on checking in on emails and the days itinerary.
Tasks of the day include:
- Meet with clients and partners
- Work on ongoing long term projects
- Solicit assistance from staff
- Move around the building/ travel within the city
- Get ideas validated by superiors
- Teach clients and subordinates about themselves and efficient systems
Areas of Interest Include:
- Food and wine
- Non-profit Organizations
- International Development
- Diversity of tasks and interactions
- Company validation of my unique ability to contribute.
- Building ideas
6 PM After the workday ends, a couple of coworkers and I meet at a bar/ lounge. Other friends and our significant others meet us there for drinks and casual food. Lots of laughs to be had.
7:30 PM We come home and I throw left overs into the fridge. We each take care of little daily chores.
8:30 PM I disrobe and draw myself a bath. I allow myself to relax and reward myself for the hard work put into the day. I practice my gratefulness. I enjoy
the calm alone time.
9 PM I dry off and prep my clothes and meal for tomorrow.
11:30 PM My partner grabs me from behind and reminds me how wonderful I am. We mess around accordingly and fall asleep in each others arms.
