Outside of holidays or vacation, if it's a weekday I am working, Which is why today is unusual in that I am not working for a client. I am a consultant in the health insurance IT space, and my company uses a concept known as "the bench." What is great about the bench is that I still get paid my salary even if I am not currently assigned to a client.

I am waiting for the paperwork to go through for the next assignment, which could start as early as next Monday or might be a week after that. So, for this week my days are wide open. 

Thankfully this time happens to coincide with the new year and a new emphasis for me on goal-setting and planning. So I won't be wasting all this time goofing off in front of the TV. I will be structuring my time to help establish daily habits and start taking action. I want to make the best use of this time before work kicks back in and dictates the majority of my time during the week.

I am grateful for the opportunity of the precious resource of time. I will not let myself down.

    @brandonwilson From what I read you are not the kind of guy who lets himself down, so I'm not really worried :P 2019 is our year!!

    @brandonwilson ah, the bench. I used to work for a company who had consultants and the moment they went on the bench they would scream at the recruiting team to get the back working. Glad you are focusing on goals vs Netflix. LOL
    Cheers on your great streak!

      @stephaniemcdonald Mine is a small company so it's really my boss, who is an SVP, to get me my next placement. No screaming here, but MVP's do not like to be on the bench. :) Thanks for the support!
