I've spent the past two weeks, about 3 hours aday, on a project to improve my task managment. I was struggling to keep up with the little things - I am great with making sure that we take care of the big things, but a number of small things fall through the cracks every month, and those small things turn big when neglected and cause me no end of grief. I read about a dozen books on techniques in the past two weeks and have totally changed my computer/iphone/ipad desk tops and how my outlook/calendar/task managers work. I am relaly hoping that will help.

on top of that, my wife and kids and I spend maybe 20 hours in the past couple of weeks working on the house, organizing and getting rid of shit we don't need. my wife has taken on a commitment to try to keep the house organized. this would make me happier than yo ucan imagine.

lets see how we do

hmph.

the good news is after about 18-26 years you can start spending the $ on yourself again. Provided it's not already spoken for by your wife.

Thanks everyone. I am really surprised it actually happened and pretty much on the correct time track. Many of my friends have jumped ship at whatever firm they are with and will never have a shot. Those that have stuck it out (and told it was a matter of time) are still waiting. I feel really fortunate.

For those of us without access to airport lounges, Vino Volo is kind of a godsend.

Z, could you recommend one or two of those books? Ones that focus on basic office organization would be best. I've never been great at organization and already I feel kind of lost at the new job.

Learning more about optimizing Outlook/other apps would be helpful.

Got a call from my boss today--she wanted to let me know much I earned the other night. Since the majority of my work was done at night on a holiday, I was getting paid roughly 3X what I normally would. In effect, I was making around $80 an hour. satisfied.gif

Have not put on a pound despite drinking like a fish and eating everything I've wanted to (including foie three times since Xmas Eve).
The home gym we set up in November has been getting daily use from both of us. Up to fast walking/jogging 4.5 miles in a session now.
Mrs. Piob's company was slow all of 2012 and she was down t half time all of 2012. That would not have crimped our cash flow except for scoring our new house in 2012. Well, she's headed back to 36 hours a week, nine hours a day Mon-Thurs so she'll still have Fridays off.
Have a single guy, no pets or kids, good job, as a tenant in our old house.
Life is good.
Good stuff, Piob. As to weight, I ended up losing a few pounds even though I ate and drank well. My hotel had a good gym that I used daily, and I found a couple of yoga studios within walking distance where I practiced yoga at one of them daily. Walking everywhere helped, too; only got a taxi once during my eight days in NY.

Although, when I first read this I thought you got gay married...

You two should start reading Lifehacker.com. All their shit is about improving things like this.
