Dean’s Blog: My Typical Week

15th November 2013

I Hate Mondays…

Never a truer word spoken in my opinion.

When 100% of my daytime was spent on the tools, I didn’t seem to mind Mondays too much; but now I’m office based for most of my time I actually hate them.

I’ve never been the most organised person and this certainly shows when Monday morning rears its ugly head. I seem to spend most of the mornings hours in a zombie type state, not being able to engage with anything.  A typical Monday for me is to float through the morning and then spend the afternoon listing the things I should of done.  This however paves the path for my next more productive couple of days.

Tuesdays and Wednesdays seem to be my most productive time of the week with my brain now functioning as it should. I actually enjoy these days and feel good that both have been worth while each week. If I had to choose two days these would be it. I can only put this down to being midway without last weekends antics effecting me and too far away from the next to distract me. I’m organised paperwork wise thanks to YourTradebase, and even sorted out tasks for myself for the rest of the week using it too, so I know exactly what I’m doing.

Since using YourTradebase, I’ve never been so organised or productive with my week. Instead of groaning at the thought of doing my quotes and invoicing, I know now that by having allotted my time to do it, it’ll all done done in an hour or so. So I can actually get on with the work I actually enjoy doing.

Then Friday is my favourite day of the week for obvious reasons and I tend to celebrate this each week by supply the staff with pizza and slipping off earlier than normal, and did someone mention a pint?  I also think that everyone else is in higher spirits on a Friday which must rub off and put a little spring in my step too.

How do you organise your week?
