Time Budget Update
After about a month, I'd thought it was time for a quick report on how my time budget is working.
The short answer is very well. I have planned by budget for two months in advance, and the organization looks good.
However if I am being completely honest, and I am, I haven't stuck to it as perfectly as I wish. I have found that Jayn has been needing my attention, and she has been on a normal schedule. So we've spent some days out and about, eating in to the "professional" time. But that's a great trade-off! Also I've had doctor's appointments, and have shifted things around on the fly somewhat.
And there has a been a bit of frittering - much diminished, though.
At the moment for my business pursuit, I am working on the business plan. In the absence of software, I have downloaded and printed a blueprint for a good business plan, and I am laboriously making my way through it. The questions are tough, incisive, and it really is important to do your plan well, both for your own clarity and for the purpose of seeking funding/investors in the future. Finally one of the purposes of a thorough plan is to ascertain if it is actually a viable proposition, a good business that might actually turn a profit.
So moving forward, slowly but surely, instead of running in frenzied circles and falling on the floor in exhaustion. Better.
