You might think that this waffle is all about success criteria, but you would be mistaken. Recently I managed to get my first research article published within a peer-reviewed journal. This was somewhat of a stressful experience and yet I managed to continue to keep focused on achieving this aim. I’m not sure whether this is because I am naturally stubborn or whether my mindset, when it comes to achieving something, is beneficial. Whatever the reason, I thought I would share with you all my own personal journey and thoughts when I am working towards this aim with the possibility that it might be helpful to anyone else who is on a similar journey at the moment.
When I got up this morning and went out to defrost the car to drive for my morning coffee and blog writing session, the sun was shining, the air was cold but crisp, frost covered the cars and the Minster bells were ringing in the background. For a moment, I actually thought it was Christmas day again! but then I suddenly realised that it was targeting setting day…oh no. As I drove and settled down in my usual seat to start typing I titled this waffle the same as the thoughts which were in my mind…so, Let’s do this and be brave and confident about the year ahead.
