Hi everyone! Today I’ll be brief due to schedule. One note though: The next Time Management post will be out in the next two days where we’ll be looking at structured flexibility and scheduling. Hope you’ll join me. *smile*
Okay, on to the ROW goals.
1) Spend a minimum of 10 hours each week continuing to refine “Ben,” until it is ready to draft. This is not get done. Zero hours. The reason: I underestimated the amount of time I’d need for both some personal events this week and the amount of college work I’d have. No worries though, as it was expected that the first eight weeks of the college semester would place intense demands on my time. I’ll be carrying this goal into the coming week now that I can plan for college and the personal events are past. Goal carried.
2) Spend 15-30 minutes a day, up to 3 hours a week, writing or editing blog posts. Ship (publish) when ready. While I did not spend the total amount of time on this goal, I did spend some. I also posted the first time management post on Monday which can be found here: 168 Hours: Time & Productivity #1. Goal carried with the second time management post coming out in the next couple days.
3) Complete all college assignments on time and with my best work. At this point I have a 100% in Management–the other classes have yet to quiz or test. I’m up to speed on all upcoming assignments, have turned in the ones that were due, and in good shape. I also spent about 4 hours planning out most of the semester to ensure I stay ahead of the game and prepared. I did have one oversight, I underestimated the time requirements for the Management classes video lectures: Planned 10-20 minutes each and the first ones are 20-45 minutes, thus my failure to hit Goal #1 up above. I’ve now gone through and estimated time for all remaining lectures and should be better able to handle the flow. Goal carried.
And that is all for this week. See you all in a day or two with the next Time & Productivity post. Until then, be sure to visit your fellow ROWers–it may be the best visit they get all week.
