It’s been way too long – nothing has been posted on this site.
Problem = lack of system = slow or no progress
- 2 weeks ago I completed a T4T vid (with the editing help of Mahfooz) but didn’t post it because I wanted to finish the other stuff
- 1 week ago I made a video…but it was on my sister’s computer and then she took her laptop home
- This week I made a video, but o look my laptop is pretty garbage so it can’t “handle” video editing
- Software didn’t install at uni, couldn’t borrow my sister’s for few hours and now I finally figured “Why not use my dad’s work laptop that’s lying in the very next room!”
Now I’m sitting here with two 95% and one 60% completed tasks but nothing to show for. However, now I’m working on bringing them all to 100%…
Solution and my Future Plan
Create systems – a process to follow from start to finish with alternatives set out in case of unanticipated problems. With that done, I know I wouldn’t waste all these days next time it happens.
Another reason why you want to create a system or process of work is to use thinking energy for creative or valuable tasks, not mundane day-to-day work.
For myself, I try to use the knowledge I share, so in this case I didn’t want to wait until I’m on a laptop with internet to write it…so this article was done on my BlackBerry while waiting in a 20 minute line at the bank last Friday.
So ya, I’ve got a few videos and announcements over the next few days so stay alert and stay safe.
ps. Anyone (Canadians) get a flashback to the safety cartoons outro “Stay Alert, Stay Safe *dada*” – on GlobalTV during the early morning cartoons 😀
