    Good morning, all!

    I had a pretty awful procrastination binge last's a reminder that I need to keep working the program, go to mtg this weekend. And today is a new day.

    Scheduled: Seminar 10:45-12:15, coffee w/ visiting scientists 3-4, Harambee 5:30-9ish

    *Finish significance analysis, look for other possible comparison datasets (have made good progress on this), email MC
    *Finish summarizing datasets (working on this now, have made good progress)
    *Finish writing up chemical treatment and irradiation expts
    *Finish as much of animal training as I can (finish reading "little helpful hints", return protocol, get health info (will do when I get home, or first thing tomorrow))

    Other tasks:
    *Organize computer files in lab
    *Read about Dazl expression patterns
    *Organize DG lab stuff
    *Ask MC about Wnts (she's not around today, so I'll need to talk to her about this whenever she gets back)

    Breaks: goodbye party for P at 9ish

    I'm going to start w/ chem. treatment and irradion expts, then I'll finish summarizing datasets, then it'll probably be about time to head to seminar.

    kromer 4:05 CI

    As usually happens, I'm going slower than I'd hoped, but at least I'm making progress (and doing much less web-browsing than in previous days, which is good). I'm going to take 20 minutes and finish up a table for the dataset summary, then I'll spend an hour and try to finish up the significance analysis (or at least make good progress on this)

    Update 5--finished table for dataset summary, much slower than I'd hoped, but at least it's done. I don't think I really have time to make progress on sig. analysis, so instead I'm going to read a paper. Once I've done that, I'll be done w/ the dataset summary.   

    Journey 9 am MIT = ?

    For those of you who are wondering what the heck is an MIT, here's the link to the Zen Habits post about them:

    Yesterday I posted that I had completed my top two MITs and didn't feel like working anymore, but I was going to do some paperwork anyway . . . well, we got some bad news about layoffs at my company right about that time, and felt so discouraged that I really didn't get anything else done.  And of course there was a lot of time spent gossiping around the water cooler too.  And then, Michael Jackson died.  So my late afternoon was non-productive, but today is a new day.

    I have another important meeting today about Project L and I am looking forward to it.  I'm going now for coffee and then back here to make todo list for the day. 

    Have a great Friday and a wonderful weekend . . .

    Sorry to hear about those layoffs - understandly distracting! praying your job and financial security are safe and sound.

    And: I really like the zenhabits link. Actually I've been doing some "positive procastinating" there know, the kind where we procrastinate actual responsiblities by studying how to overcome procrastination...:rolleyes:

    thanks ag

    my job is ok for now :)

    Hi journey,

    I'm sorry to hear about the layoffs -- that's so hard on morale for everyone!  

    Understandable that there would be a drop in productivity after that.  So. . . aren't you glad you got those MITs done first?  Smile
