How to be unproductive
Since Monday my productivity has slumped. I am exhausted. I have been putting in long hours over the past few weeks. It has caught up with me now.
There is so much to do. Three potential clients became clients. As others know there is a fair amount of work involved when taking on new clients. Also my staff is on study leave from tomorrow. How will I cope! Good news is that I am relying more and more on her. This means she is becoming more independent.
In addition, 2 existing clients have asked for one off additional work. I have now cotton on to the fact this needs to be charged. They have accepted this. Up till now I was Mr Nice with clients. The more free work I did the more additional work I got.
Also I have really messed up the accounting for one client. This is because of my lack of their industry knowledge. I am sure the critics will slate me for this. I am learning fast and I will spend hours sorting this out.
Further, I have applied to buy block fees. As expected the seller can be choosy. Time was taken up in reading and filling in forms. Then there will further work if I am shortlisted as a buyer.
The fact that I tend to get really wound up by some of the AW response does not help. This is stupid of me.
Food wise I decided to follow Weight Watchers no point counting food diet. I have stuck with this but I have eaten too much! I am getting back to point counting after Thursday’s weigh-in. I was so looking forward to my Silver 7. After all the hard work, I may have put on weight. So annoyed!
No more work for me this evening. I will start cleaning up my place with radio in the background. It relaxes me.
Blogging makes me feel better.
