I started 2009 with a plan. I was going to clear the decks of outstanding tasks and move on to new and exciting things.
Now, 3 weeks in that's all out the window. Some how I've ended up gathering lots of new tasks I didn't really count on. You might think that I should have expected this, but really most of these were not things that you would ever plan for.
At a time of credit crunch I have managed to be placed on 3 projects at once at work. These along side 3 internal projects. My main full time client work is also extending each time we talk to our client.
On top of that there are 3 personal projects each requiring some time.
All of this is sitting in my task list far ahead of the other, less familiar and therefore more interesting, things I want to get to.
It's time to sort all of this out and re-plan my year. So here and now I say to myself that by the end of the week I will have got my head straight and plotted a course to sanity.
I will have gotten ahead of the plan at work and effectively delegate that which can be.
I will have moved into the next phase of personal project 1.
Finally I will, by next week have sorted out our bowling score graphs! Only then could guilt be remove and sanity return.
