productive

Friday Oct 17, 2008

(The font thing is still messed up. But it’s Friday afternoon so what chance do you think it’s going to be fixed today?)

 

This week has been uber productive.

 

I was extremely put out to realise that though I work hard, it doesn’t appear I’m always working smartly. What is pretty much a massive blow to my ego.

 

But I’ve made some changes to how I do things and when I do things like I am a morning person and am thinking the most clearly in the morning, yet that was when I would always do ‘easy’ tasks like return emails, or ticket jobs or administration. So in the afternoon when I’d get to the specialist part of my job like research and strategy and stuff my brain is dead.

 

So I’ve switched all that stuff around and do my specialist stuff in the morning and admin and support in the afternoon. And I am feeling a billion times more productive.

 

Who knew asking for constructive criticism would be beneficial?

 

I have a lady date tomorrow with K and Beth. We arranged to go for girls nights once a month, as out of all of our friends K and I are the only ones who are single. So most of the socialising we do is couple style things, there are a lot of BBQ’s, there are

 a lot of nights spent hanging out at other people’s house, when we go out it tends to be to our local pubs and we go away for relaxing weekends.

 

Now these are all very pleasant and I love the laidback-ness of it all, I am not going to meet new boys at Beth’s house, nor am I going to meet them on our weekends away as K and I end up sharing a room. And K is sharing with a straight girl (me) and I am sharing with a gay girl (K) neither of it helping us to get laid or meet new people.

 

Hence the girls night, we’ve managed to narrow it down to start at the Opera Bar, end up in Newtown. I mean Newtown is full of gay girls and cute straight boys so it’s win win.

 

Also I’m road testing one of the many new dresses I’ve bought recently so it should be good.

Beth needs to find a new apartment to move to as her current flatmates are moving out, she was looking at an apartment literally 2 minutes walk from my place this afternoon. It would be awesome if she likes it and gets it to have her just up the road.

 

(Bummer – it was too small, no best friend across the street.

 

I bought George a new tweed collar with his name and my number embroidered on it. He looks very distinguished.

 

(Although if I start dressing him up in clothes and stuff please take me out to the back paddock and put me out of my misery okay?)

Mr. Guinness:

Boy, you do sound a lot better! I find my own productivity in the 6am to 11 am time slot, after that it’s all down hill. In fact I just signed on for a new “on-line” planner thingy by Franklin Covey. I’m finding as I get older I just want to collect pens, I hate having to write anything by hand anymore. (Is that bad?)
Have a great weekend, I’m planning to as well. 🙂

Did you just put your mobile number on the internet?

Alec – I’m the opposite with hand writing, because I spend 10+ hours at the computer I love to write by hand.

But my optimum work time definitely mirrors yours.

Mark – Nah, I blocked a couple of the numbers out. But you made me paranoid so its down now.
