All-day jobs

Hilary Cadman Staying focused Leave a Comment

When I worked for someone else, a job that took all day – such as running a training course or attending a meeting – was great. I was pleased to get out of the office and meet new people, focus on a single project for a day and have lots of billable hours to record. Now that I’m working for myself, all those positives still apply, but the downside is that, when I’m out all day on a single job, other tasks don’t get done. As a result, I feel somewhat stretched on subsequent days. This is particularly an issue for me with training courses – I put so much into them that I find it hard to focus for at least 24 hours afterwards. I guess the answer is to clear the decks as much as possible BEFORE one of these days, so that I’m not overwhelmed by the backlog afterwards.
