Productivity Update 4

Bad day today, recovering from a relapse of the flu or something.

I did manage to:

  1. Catalogue the books I bought on the weekend, and reorganise my catalogue in general
  2. Start a new method of collecting information about places and history in TMG
  3. Do the washing
  4. Have a play with the SAG website by instaling Joomla on my website (this one) and copying the template into it. I still don’t know how to export the content and import it into the new one, so I have something to play with.

Tomorrow, I’m going to:

  1. Process the research I did last week
  2. Prepare the next steps for that research
  3. Do some client research

See, it does work. I don’t feel so much that this day was a complete waste of a day as I did before, and I can be less hard on myself.

Productivity update – not!

I’ve been away for a few days, so there’s been no productivity update because there’s been no productivity!

It was a social and educational weekend devoted to the history of the Irish in Australia, so it was productive in a way, but everything is still waiting for me now that I’m back.

Tomorrow I’ll get back into it.
