Staff Meeting and Weekly Review

It was a pretty good week in terms of productivity.

Using the paper and pencil planner sheets is more fun

I have been using these planner sheets for three weeks now and they are an amazing aid to getting things done around here. They are also exposing a big weakness in my higher level planning, that I am over-extending myself.

The yellow hi-lited portions are things that did not get done that week (the Monthly planner is the one on top). As you can see, the fist week was a start-up, the second week was not good at all. The third week I caught up a bit but (as of Saturday morning when I am writing this) the Work.Smarter! editing has not been done. Which is odd because I keep telling myself that task is the most important. Aaah, but it’s not the most Urgent.

The good news? The Weekly Planner has a lot of blue on it right now, no pink! and just a little yellow…progress is being made. I will be making some more progress on this as well, this isn’t over until Sunday. And I still have two weeks in this month’s plan.

(so now I am going to stop here with the pre-review, go have lunch, then work on the Kindle book all afternoon.)

Whew! I worked on the layout all afternoon and it looks good! Now I just need to get some editing for clarity done on the last chapter.

Wow. Copy and paste from Evernote makes this a LOT easier. I still wish that I could figure out the formatting & why the sub-levels of the UL are so much bigger…

It is now just after noon, next week is plotted out, I am going to go eat lunch and take the rest of the day off.
