Hotcode Designs » Day 6 and back to work
My dear husband informed me today that I have a lot of work to get through so I should get a full day of work in before he gets home. Thanks dear. My plan for today is to work on my business plan for this year. I've got a lot of things I would like to achieve, one of them being the goal to churn out 30 websites during the year, so I need to put a plan in place on how to achieve this.
Another goal is to get better at managing my time, and to not spend so much of it on unimportant things. The most productive days I have is when I write down what I do for eight hours, mostly because I hate to write down that I spent 30 minutes playing a game, or that I took a nap even though I could hardly keep my eyes open. So along with this blog, I will be keeping a record of my time and I'll see how much work I can get done in a day. Hopefully it will clear the backlog of its and pieces I have to catch up on, and also get things ready for when I actually open the office back up on the 11th.
I'm using a good program called WorkflowMax, which is an online job/time management tool. I can set up job templates so that for each new website I have a list of things that I need to do, how long it should take to complete, and then as I'm working on it I can log my hours. I also use another online programme called Xero to manage my accounts. It also allows me to generate invoices and statements. I plan on making full use of both these programmes this year. I put them in place last year but haven't been using them as much as I should.
So my business goals for January:
Wish me luck :)
