I didn't get to bed at 11pm. Oh well. 11:45pm isn't too bad.
Well done on getting to bed before 2am! :P
I've been banging my head against the wall, trying to fix the DotNetNuke problem. I must get to bed! I'm tired.
I'm back from the meeting. I saw a new friend there, and that was nice. I want to get to bed by 11pm, so I'm going to start my bedtime routine at 10pm - in 40 minutes. Work for today is done.
I'm incredibly frustrated that I didn't get DotNetNuke working. No one has answered my question yet (request to install a stored procedure), and I suspect I'll have to wait until Monday. So tomorrow I'll work on my backlog (accounting and PayPal notifications).
Oh, what a frustrating day!! I spent the whole day trying to get DotNetNuke installed on the server, and I did not succeed. I'm just learning ASP.Net and Windows servers, so every time I made an error it took me an hour or more to fix. Then I hit a wall.
I finally got all my errors cleaned out, and discovered that a stored procedure I needed was missing from the server. My new Web host does NOT answer support email, which has been frustrating the hell out of me. So this afternoon I called.
You can get someone on the phone pretty fast. I don't get that. Phone support is much more expensive than email support, so why are they putting so few resources into email support that they force people to call?
Anyway, naturally the tech who answered couldn't help me himself. My technical questions always end up being escalated. I can figure out most things for myself, so I only call when it's a really big problem.
I'm frustrated, but at least I did all I could do. I'm going to a meeting in a few minutes. That will make me feel better. :)
Sweep some more – wow how much dirt can one place accumulate
I went to taekwondo today for 3 hrs. First time in a long time. I’ve decided to test for my second degree black belt in December. It’s really nice to be listening to GTD and David Allen’s comparison to being a black belt in GTD.
I never really tell people that I’m in TKD – but I was able to see how the disciple is very effective. I actually used to teach.
after dinner w/husband’s family:
keep adding to in box
get pics ready to print at school
Hi Pro hope you're progressing well with your learning.
I'm struggling to stick to my own commitments today (not that I've even commited myself to much).
*Meal (DSO is clearing up - I hope!)
*Put clothes away
*Sorted out all my work clothes for next week (I put the whole outfit on one hanger, including socks and undies)
*Washed the car (it's been throwing it down for days here, so I thought I'd use the weather like a hose - made it really easy to clean the car!)
As you can see, none of these, except the meal, were on my ToDo list.
*Get ready to go out (clothes already on hanger - just need to change and do makeup, and maybe hair)
Edit: Good grief! I just noticed it's nearly two hours since my last post! What on earth have I been doing?
Finally I'm dressed!
I'm not going to work on my backlog today because I really need to learn DotNetNuke so I can prepare the estimate on Monday.
I think it must have something to do with moon phases or something, all this procrastinating on board.
I'm procrastinating at the very first stage (according to my new book Isn't It About Time?) - 'Becoming Aware'. I'm not even allowing things to come to consciousness, so I don't even know what I'm procrastinating about. I didn't plan anything, so I'm not specifically putting anything off, but I've got that uneasy 'shouldn't I be doing something?' feeling beginning to creep up on me.
I'm going to have something to eat (eating at strange hours today as I'm going out for a meal tonight at a strange time), then I think I'll do a Weekly Review and see if I really ~am~ missing something.
I would like to get ready for Monday pretty soon as I might be going off on a jaunt tomorrow (if I can get a ticket) to see a band I've just discovered (one of the things I was doing yesterday was looking at their website).
Curiously enough, the name of the band could be a procrastinator's call to action 'OK Go'. If you ~do~ go check them out have a look at the video for 'Here It Goes Again'.
*Reading and snuggling with DSO
*Sort of Morning Routine (now amended to include 'bath Ddog and wash bedding')
*Went on an adventure (OK, it was a walk with DSO and DDog, but it was somewhere I'd not been before)
*Meal, clear up
I'll just stick to that for now - I need to be able to trust myself to do that before I can commit myself to anything else, and who knows what the Weekly Review will bring up?
I just fixed up flexiblefine's summary of "The Now Habit" - broke it up into separate chapters. That took a little time. And I still haven't finished my morning routine. I'm sitting here in my jammies. I will get dressed before noon today!!
For some reason, I have become obsessed with finding Tetris games for every platform I own. I already have a good Tetris came on my cell phone (that's my favorite version). Yesterday and today (again today!) I have been downloading and testing Tetris programs for the Pocket PC and Windows desktop. What is the matter with me?!
Okay, I'm done searching for new Tetris programs. I have to finish my morning routine. I'll play one more game on my cell phone, and that's it!!
I lost a couple days of work this week - one due to hardware problems, one due to procrastination - so I'm going to do some work this weekend. And tonight (unlike the last few days), I will go to bed at 11pm so I can get up at 7am without sleep deprivation!
