"I fairly sizzle with zeal and enthusiasm
and I spring forth with a mighty faith
to do the things that ought to be done by me."

CI Do It Now 512 pm tues

work on writing done

email contact on project  done


Well, managed to meet a few of my goals yesterday, but didn't work on the really old case at all, and (no surprise) struggled to make myself go to bed at 1:30 AM. Well, today has been a hard start again, but I have a reasonable amount of work to attend to, then half-day tomorrow and back on the road until Monday. So I am actually feeling a little complacent. However, I have to force myself to progress, because I don't want to be facing panic later or tomorrow morning.

Goal 1: Two 30-minute work blocks (current work) with no internet interruptions

Goal 2: Check internet quickly for anything from meeting co-contributors (have already been compulsively scanning email all morning for that same purpose)

Goal 3: Lunch for 30 minutes

Goal 4: Two 30-minute work blocks (current work), check email at end of second block

Goal 5: Two 30-minute work blocks (current work), check email at end of second block

Goal 6: Two 30-minute work blocks (overdue case), check email at end of second block

Goal 7: Dinner for 30 minutes

Goal 8: Two 30-minute work blocks (current work if not finished, otherwise overdue case), check email at end of second case

Goal 9: Leave by 8:30 PM

Goal 10: Laundry for trip, pack bag

Goal 11: Meeting prep

Goal 12: Bed by 11:30 PM (seriously)

Back to report.

Happy Tuesday!   I am working from home today, and feeling a bit more rested although still not back to normal, or what passes for normal around here.   Yesterday was quite a struggle, I think I was sleep-walking through most of it.   

Making todo list now.   Some of the pressure is off, which is good, but not necessarily a good thing for my productivity.   I will plan a reasonable amount of work for today, and when it is done I will relax.

kromer 9:20 CI

Today I have some scheduled meetings:
*Lab mtg
*Cell cycle club

*Dinner w/ friend, and/or square dancing

And I have some work:
*Finish and email rough draft (working on this now)
*Finish hyb & image (will start this soon)
*make more ROL

Hypatia has lost the plot!

After  avery busy couple of week,  and some unavoidable time off work I have realised that my procrastination has got so bad I am having trouble even getting started, both at home and at work. I haven't logged on here because I've been rushing to get the highly urgent stuff done.  If I wrote down everything I should be doing I'd just get completely paralysed.

 I have a meeting in half-an-hour.  The rest of the day will be

  • check for urgent e-mails
  • return phone calls
  • yesterdays reports
  • today's reports
  • find P's records
  • write MH reference
