I spent a lot of the weekend in front of my computer – answering e-mails, filing, and playing Scrabble on Facebook. I really like that game! It’s a good brain relaxer and good break during the day to refresh and clear my head. It works.. but there is the over-doing it which I have also participated in. I mean, spacing out on anything but what I need to do.
I got myself into a lot of trouble with e-mails this week. Too many of them, too much back and forth trying to schedule a meeting. EESH!
There is so much to do and not enough hours in the day; most of us know that one.
What I know is that I want to stay a current as possible with my social media networking and updating. Doing this helps me to feel current with myself, my business and my reality.
I have 1 website and 3 blogs:
It’s a lot of work to keep them ‘fresh.’ I spent my first 1 hour on the computer doing an extended session today. But I must draw a line on when to stop or I will not move on to my next task and a client appointment.
So, I will be signing off for now.
Here’s what I learned yesterday. I was added to a meeting
My mission was to see to it that she have a clear head to focus on her presentation. I took care of all the little details including giving her a sign when there was 15 minutes left in the presentation, and then again when there was 5 minutes remaining. It’s usually awkward because I know when they see the sign, there is a good chance they’ll get distracted. She was right on target! She was well-rehearsed and did a stupendous job.
What I discovered is that every SINGLE detail is important. I knew I would be timing the defense but decided AT THE LAST MINUTE, to use the Blackberry’s timer feature (which I set to vibrate.) It was my FIRST TIME using the timer feature. Why I decided to do this at the eleventh hour, is beyond me. Must have been my ‘cocksuredness’ to think that I would KNOW how to! Well, the good news is that it worked. And what it taught me is about THINKING THINGS ENTIRELY THROUGH.
I will do even better next time!
