It's that time of year again when I can't wait to get home from the office and get in the yard asap and delight in Spring's splendor. Picking up, cleaning up, uncovering, discovering, discarding -- getting my flower beds tidy and organized for the new season. My garden is so pretty right now, filled with spectacular daffodils here, there, and everywhere.
But the true delight comes with the first rose of Spring, and yes, she's blooming in all her glory in my front yard. She's the Helleborus rose, the first flower of Spring. And as I'm cleaning and doing my yard work, I'm also writing a training program, developing new hand-outs, creating a new career poem, thinking how I want to change up this or that. All in my head, of course, but it works so that when I arrive back at the office, I'm ready to jump in with clarity and purpose.
If you are thinking about some Spring cleaning for your career and need a little extra help in doing so, you may like HassleMe, a little tool that nags you. Nag, nag, nag! It nags you via e-mail about things you know you should be doing, but may forget (write resume, practice interviewing, network, call recruiter, etc.) You can set up a frequency, but it will nag you at random times and maybe it will help you get better organized and keep your career management plan on track this Spring.
