Another "interesting" looking property for sale.
Getting a bit of a theme - a late start due jointly to me and need to give antibiotics to a reluctant four year old.
Once started though, got through a bit of email clearing (total of about 1.5 hours across the day!).
Had a good call with an existing consultancy client who's looking for some help with a new project (about 1 hour for call and follow-up actions).
20 minutes investigating an issue for another consultancy client.
Then 20 minutes sorting out car insurance! Only a renewal but took a while to find all my details and then wait in their queue. On the plus side though, it was cheaper than last year - with the same provider!
Lots of things in 20 minute slices today.
Responding to another plea for help from a Park 25 resident (I'm the admin for the Park 25 community site), unfortunately all I could do was point them towards the management company. Took 20 minutes trying (and failing) to find some of the information they asked for though.
A kind soul noticed that my blog comment form (reCaptcha) was broken - so I spent 20 minutes fixing it.
The bulk of the day (about 4 hours) was spent putting together an advert (see below) that will be printed in the school summer fayre programme.
Time for the Month
Writing an update for a mastermind group I'm part of, I've worked out a quick snapshot of how my work time has ended up being used so far this month (8 working days for me):
- 25% All Secure Domains (marketing, development and server work)
- 25% PaTMa (almost all marketing)
- 25% Reading, replying to and generally dealing with email (I need to start splitting this up a bit)
- 20% Consultancy client work (including some pre-sales, meetings and quotes)
- 5% Property management and Redhill Micropreneurs
Compared to my general plan (not specific to the last 8 days):
- 60% PaTMa (40% marketing, 20% dev)
- 20% All Secure Domains
- 20% Consultancy
Perhaps my plan is just too simple - not allowing at all for where I spent 30% of my time. Or perhaps I'm just spending too much time dealing with emails! I'm definitely going to start tracking my "email" work in more detail.
