Good morning to you all.

Jester -Opening Bookend - Active Clients - 2010-09-29 Wed 2:20pm

Work on Active Clients till 3pm.
Finish three.

Closing Bookend - Active Clients - All Done 3;25pm

Did one, the hardest.
Time for lunch.

Opening Bookend - Jester - 2010-09-29 Wed 5:41pm

Going to see how many Active Clients I can serve by 6:15pm

Closing Bookend - Jester - 2010-09-29 Wed 6:12 pm

Got 1 Active Client done and up-to-date.
The easiest one, but okay, not bad.


Opening Bookend - Jester - 2010-09-29 Wed 6:23pm (CA time)

OK going to see if I can do 3 more Active Clients by 7pm. Calling it quits at 7pm on Actives, regardless.


Closing Bookend - Jester - 2010-09-29 Wed 6:59 pm

OK, completed 1 Active Client (with excellent service) :grin:

Done with active clients for today


"Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof"

Opening Bookend - Jester - 2010-09-29 Wed 7;23pm (CA time)

OK, just for an exciting change of pace. Let's see if I can get my new website "live"(i.e. usable) by 8pm tonight.

Notice I didn't say "finished." Just "live"!

Here gooooooes!


Jester - good night - mission accomplished!

Couldn't post before, but got the website published and the domain names pointed to the servers around 8:20pm. So -- mission accomplished.

Got one (ugly) website finished, with IX webhosting,

But then, I got a new free one started with GoDaddy, under one of my other domain names. They want my hosting business.) So far, GoDaddy's software seems easier and more intuitive. May have to switch. Both companies have good tech support.

Time to go eat. Good night all.


Off Topic

I've obviously been away.

Glad you guys are still here, I'm grateful to those who operate this well-run board. (Is it still "Pro"?)

Congratulations on live chat and telephone meetings, I believe they're new since I was around.

I'm going to try to bbe not-too-chatty this time around, and "stick to the knitting".

tracy-la - checking in on sept 29

Gratitude for all the people in the chatbox while I was working and for comments here. Also to Vic for helping start my day on a positive encouraging note.

 1. Check in / show up - done

2. check calendar for weds/thurs/fri/sat/sun - done  

3. plan to plan - done

4. gratitude - 1 min

5.  exercise - plan for that (even if only for 5 min)

 6. practice asking my higher power to take over one thing that I used to think was too petty to even involve HP because I "should" be able to do it. For example, asked HP to help me get to an appointment on time on Monday at a friend's excellent suggestion. It helped to turn it over. Today I will ask HP to help me get a bill out today. 

Have a great day everyone and thanks so much for your checking in since it is inspiring and helpful to me. Tracy-la

You can explore the universe looking for somebody who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and you will not find that person anywhere.-Buddhist Quote

*Write up scanning restuls

OK, starting these now

Hello! Thank you all for being here.

wasn't very productive yesterday, though I didn't engage in traditional P behaviors like web surfing.  So that's progress.  I shuffled papers alot though which is an indication that I'm having trouble prioritizing.  I feel a bit scattered with all of the projects, tasks, etc. that I have out there. Giving myself an hour this morning to try to pull it all together into something that I can at least force myself to look at.

So my big goal for today:

  •  Organize the mind dump that I did last week into projects
  • prioritize projects and lists

meeting with my boss this afternoon. perhaps he can help me determine what's most important.  I always have a hard time asking for this type of direction as I want everyone to think that I'm eminently competent. Ha! 


Reminder to myself today: be humble and honest.

"Continuous improvement is better than delayed perfection." -Mark Twain

Wishing everyone a proactive, even if imperfect, day! :)

Journey 8 am

Good morning!  Working from home today and only working 1/2 day cause I have a dr. appt. this afternoon.   may or may not go to the gym after the doctor.   Making todo list now!
