I have 2 hours a night of spare time at home. This is after dinner, gym and family time.
What can be done in that time to get ahead in my career?
For purposes of context: I work as a prosecutor and my daily work is preparing, negotiating and trying criminal cases. With the exception of some weekends and late nights, I do my work at the office and don’t bring it home.
I’m glad to have the job but I would be happier with more money and more responsibility. That’s not happening anytime soon due to tight government budgets, and more experienced people not leaving their positions.
The kind of activity I’m looking for needs a low barrier of entry. One past example that has worked for me has been online language learning. I signed up for Livemocha to learn Spanish online and it has helped refresh my high school Spanish. Since I work in the Houston area, Spanish is valuable to communicate with clients.
Is there something you worked on consistently each night to get ahead?
