Some Biz, Career & Money Articles

Check out this month's issue of  HUN-E's online magazine, where I have a number of articles in the Business & Finance section. HUN-E is a Women's Design Business and Lifestyle magazine. They cover fashion, art, mentorship, travel and music, among other things. All things going well, I'm going to be writing up content for this section for a long time.

Meanwhile, the past three days have been very productive - I sent out proposals to potential clients, got my ongoing projects organised ( now at least I know the scope of what I need to do), finished a couple of articles and documents and sent them to clients. The one thing I've come to appreciate is that I feel better when, at the end of the day, I've sent a completed project, however small, to a client. To me it means that I contributed something tangible to my business that day- something that could be published, or even, something that will be paid for.

Question: How do you measure your productivity each day/week? Is it red marks on your "To Do" list, indicating that the task is completed? Is it word count, if you are a writer?

These days I feel like a hamster getting nowhere, but I agree that completely something however small does give a sense of accomplishment. Finding out that something I wrote was published or will be published is always great and writing anything, even a 400 or 500 word post thrills me. I find posting by BB works for me. I don't even have to open my netbook, just pick up my BB. My partner is starting to complain that it's glued to my palm!

I measure my productivity by how well I sleep at night :-)

I must admit that I find it hard to see anything other than the writing as productive. So I might spend a day following up on payments and invoicing my clients, which has to be done, but I won't feel like I've been productive unless I've managed a bit of writing or editing. I'm trying to learn to see the other stuff as importnant too!
