Here is how I worked around the power problem:
- Attended a meeting - I already had a meeting scheduled with my accountant, so that's one solid task that made me feel productive.
- Went to see client at office - one client had a query on Friday and we were going round in circles with our email correspondence. Power outage gave me excuse to go in and attend to the issue in person. Query is now resolved, and most importantly, client knows she is important enough for me to show up to spend 10 minutes with her to resolve query. Occured to me later that this was a good PR exercise:-)
- Did some admin and filing - Good time to catch up with the never-ending paperwork, hey?
- Drafted an article by hand - My writer friend Anita Khanna was saying the other day that writing by hand alllows the creative side of the brain to take over. And she's right - the words just kept coming.
- Found alternative work space - spending the afternoon at a friend's house ( who also works from home) working in her dining room. That's where I'm updating this blog. Thank you, Gaynor!
