Career comparison is such so dangerous and counterproductive, but so addicting. Instead of working on things that I should and enjoy working on, I feel constantly pulled into this world of comparison. These are the 6 strategies that I’m currently using to tame my desire to constantly wallow in self-comparison.
I think as adults, we all know what we should be doing. We all know we are supposed to not let the dishes rot in the sink, and to eat healthy, etc. It’s been getting myself to actually follow through on those things that has been the challenging part.
So after many years of being an adult, I’ve finally found the motivational secret that pushes me to do all the things that I know I’m supposed to, but won’t.
Well, that’s a wrap!
2018 has literally flown by for me! In good and bad ways but I seriously don’t know where the time went! And as the year finishes up, I’m revisiting my 2018 year goals. More than that, I’m going to be grading myself on the effort I put into these goals, not the results.
With the holidays just around the corner, life can get super busy. But for me, it seems like this weird juxtaposition of the busy holiday season and then lazy dead …

Well technically it’s July but it’s roughly 6 months..ish.
Either way I wanted to write a post that provided a check-in on my goals for the year, and to be honest, I haven’t really been keeping up with them. And it’s easy to say, “Well, the year is half over, so why bother?” but it’s just as easy to think “Well, I still have 6 months left, there’s still so much I could accomplish.”
For a blog called Millennial Life Admin, you’d think I’d have shit altogether, all the time right? Nope. And that’s a part of growing up. It’s easy to think that as “adults” we need to have it all together all the time, but that’s neither healthy nor realistic. I used to think my parents (or really any parent) knew exactly what they were doing and had every aspect of the life responsibilities all together, and the truth is, no one does. No one knows what they are doing and everyone has room to improve.
So here are 6 Life Admin Tasks that I’ve been avoiding and my commitment to you on what I’m doing about it.
