Welcome to 2018!

The first full working week of 2018, how are things going for you?  

Last week whizzed by for me, with an on-site day with one client and an excellent meeting with another, reviewing the past three months and planning for the coming months. My feet barely touched the ground.  Unfortunately, I was suffering with a cold (kindly donated by my nephew over Christmas, he was happy to gift it to me, my Mum and Dad, we have taught him to share well!).

This meant I wasn’t able to join my walking group on Saturday, however, I snuggled up at home and went slightly mad with de-cluttering rooms, updating music on i-tunes, putting the Christmas decorations into the loft and generally filling my recycling bin to the brim.  It felt very therapeutic, almost worth missing the walk!

I also reviewed my categories, which I have blogged about previously and thought it may be helpful to re-share with you, “Must Do”; “Should Do”; “Will Do”!

Must Do: for me, are things that have been outstanding for some time, not necessarily important, though items I would like to complete for my own sanity.

Should Do: are daily or weekly tasks that will be completed regularly and will always be there.  Identified in Outlook, my reminders keep these in hand.

Will Do:  are goals we have set for 2018, to assist Holly and I, in continuing to develop and grow Virtual Angels.

Take a look at your own task list, identify tasks that fit into each category, then book out regular blocks of time in your calendar to tackle them.  January is a great time to review processes and tickling completed items off at the end of the day provides a sense of achievement.

Make this full working week count and take a little time each day to identify and complete some Must, Should and Will Do tasks.  Let me know how much you enjoy ticking them off at the end of the day.

In my last blog, I talked about preparing for an office move, thinking about the location, engaging staff in the project and budgeting!  This time I am covering the relocation plan and the actual move. Continue reading “More on, Relocation, Relocation, Relocation”

Relocation, Relocation, Relocation!

Over the past few months, I have been helping a client move offices, relocation, relocation, relocation! Moving from the Isle of Wight to the mainland (a real change of scenery). I have visited both the Isle of Wight and the chosen area in the UK during the past few months, so some on-site work rather than virtual for a change!

However, initially, the sourcing of the new office was started by searching the internet for possible options and making lots of telephone calls. Continue reading “Relocation, Relocation, Relocation!”

9 January 2017 already – I can’t quite believe it myself?!

I had loads of plans for the Christmas/New Year holiday, although I wasn’t scheduled to have a complete break myself, apart from the usual bank holidays.  It was going to be my time to catch up on some tasks that appear to have been on my own to-do list for much longer than I would like and plan for 2017.

However, a family member admitted to hospital and the best laid plans are put to one side as family come first.  Thankfully, after an operation and great care by the NHS, my family member is home recovering and we are slowly getting back to normal.

Though I now seem to have an even longer list of things that I would like to do.  There seem to be three categories at present: “Must Do”; “Should Do”; “Will Do”! Continue reading “Welcome to 2017! Planning going well?”
