Not actual direct money making work… but office work!
The winter here in NJ has been horrible for the past 8 weeks. I only venture outside a couple of times a week at most… Normally I would be pretty bummed about not going outside… BUT Its made me tremendously productive. I have been getting so much stuff done its crazy. All sorts of old lingering to dos and projects have been getting completed.
For the first time I actually feel semi caught up and not completely overwhelmed with work… Its kinda nice.
Unlike most of the country, our “winter” does not prohibit us from outdoor work. Losing two employees in the last 60 days has forced me to pick up a lot of slack in the field, so of course things got backed up and unorganized everywhere else. I [I]should[/I] be happy that we grossed 23% more this January than last and 35% from Jan. 2012, but the panic of loosening my grip on the back end operations has stressed me out. I wouldn’t mind a blizzard or two right now
This Winter has been harsh for sure. I’m with you Chris. I usually still get out a couple days a week but this year I’ve been stuck inside. We have accomplished a lot this winter for sure. Able to implement a lot of new ideas and get a lot of processes ironed out.
I’m definitely not thrilled about my income over the winter but I have more money booked this weekend then I made all of January. So I guess things are starting to look up a little… [SIZE=3][SIZE=1]just a little…[/SIZE][/SIZE]
