Re: Mae & FrugalPatat's Journey

Interim work I have been a bit MIA because I got a last minute temporary office job 2 weeks ago. That is done now. It was a 10 minute walk from home and the colleagues were friendly. The work was boring and repetitive, and by the end of each week, I had ran out of work, which made the day pass slow...

I see that I did a great job at making it seem as if I am my own hero. Lol

I am not.

Re: Mae & FrugalPatat's Journey

Haha, ertyu! Well, in fact, I had to list my own talents and shortcomings so I got those noted anyway! ;) If I apply what you said on this exercise, I must say that yes, I see a LOT of projecting. For example, my friend who is very empathetic and an enormous people pleaser named almost exclusively p...

Re: disk_poets road towards semi-ERE

I find that I often hold myself to higher standards than my employers do. It might be the same for you. If you got positive feedback, you better believe it :D

Re: Mae & FrugalPatat's Journey

Job coaching part 2 So today was my second session of job coaching and it was a fun one. I returned home full of energy. And I got 2 resources! For your typical renaissance person. The Ted talk describes me to a T. It was a bit uncanny. https://www.ted.com/talks/emilie_wapnick_why_some_of_us_don_t_...

Re: Mae & FrugalPatat's Journey

I'm happy you are feeling better today. I still see a lot of my colleague-friends from previous jobs, so not all is lost. I also made a lot of friends through volunteering. Yes, it resonates with me. I think I was looking at the job coaching in general, because I am dumping 60 euros per session into...

Re: Mae & FrugalPatat's Journey

Job coaching part 1 So I had my first session on Monday and it took me nearly all week to process most of it, and the next one is around the corner :shock: The session was around 1h15 duration and we walked around a local park while we discussed the exercise. Normally, my coach tries to finish a wh...

Re: Mae & FrugalPatat's Journey

Well damn, I didn't mean to make you people depressed with this exercise. I was overwhelmed by the last exercise :lol: I bump into quite a lot of grief around how different my life would have turned out if I had actual support - I bump mainly into parents/close friends stuff. Coaching, after all, is...

Re: Mae & FrugalPatat's Journey

"where do you see yourself in five years" I hate that question. I feel like the exercise is helpful for both info mining and unearthing insights. No world-shocking insights so far, but things I knew that got confirmed once again: - I frequently start new hobbies and stop after 1-2 years (i...

Re: Mae & FrugalPatat's Journey

Good luck with the hunt! It seems to make the rounds currently. I also really can't stand phone calls. I procrastinate them like almost nothing else :D Also +1 on ertyu. I hope the coaching goes well. I often find it helpful to get other perspectives. It's something I've personally struggled with o...

Re: Mae & FrugalPatat's Journey

Will you tell us what your coach is making you do? I'm curious! Hope you enjoy it and she turns out to be a good fit. Good luck with job hunting! For sure! And thank you. My first exercise that I need to have ready by Friday is a visual lifeline (timeline), divided in segments of 6 years, starting ...

Re: COVID topic vol 2

Does anyone have any scientific sources that go into details on the mink zoonosis? That has the potential to be massive significant because zoonosis tends to increase virulence, but I'm having a difficult time finding reputable scientific details on this incident.

:roll: Exactly. Good thing is I start my first session with my coach next Friday. Hoping it'll be less fluffy :D We video called for a free intake of about half an hour and she seems understanding and good-humoured, the latter which I am not (anymore). It'll be an interesting combination. I asked fo...

Re: Mae & FrugalPatat's Journey

@ertyu, I lost interest in reading Design Your Life after the first exercise. I tend to not pick up a book again if that happens. I think what put me off was the sales pitch and supposedly USP every other page, and lots of information that they could have left out. Don't like fluffy texts.

The issue there is then that I am still conditioning myself on "success" and immediately start thinking how I can improve the situation or keep it going. I think this mental jump is what I want to cut out.
Let me know if you found something that works :D
