Statistical Analysis: How I spent my Saturday
So this is how my day is going so far...
- Number of job interviews looming: 1
- Number of presentations to prepare for job interview: 1
- Number of hours I planned to spend on job interview prep today: (like, 8 or so?... Obviously, these were going to be interspersed with productive little ten-minute breaks, during which I do a little catching up on commissions/ do laundry)
- Number of hours of interview prep which have so far happened: 0 (although do 5 minutes scribbling count?...)
- Number of hours spent having a lie-in this morning (and afternoon) : (... if you count from the moment I was awake, then I think about... 7)
- Number of loads of laundry that have made it into the machine today: 1 (yay!...)
- (number of loads that have made it out again: 0)
- Number of self-help books perused so far, when I should be working: 1 (Stop Being Nice, Start Being Real, by Thomas d'Ansembourg)
- Number of chats over the phone with best friend: 1
- Number of actual things achieved by 5 pm: 7 (had shower, brushed hair, ate breakfast, ate lunch, put laundry on, made tea, put computer on, started writing blog post :) )
- Things still left to do today: 1 (prepare for that bloody interview....)
- Number of hours still left available to me: (oh, I don't know... two? Because I have a friend who offered to look at my interview presentation and she has time TONIGHT. And also, I want to go on a date.)
- Number of small steps I intend to take: 2 (1 - write some notes on what friend said; 2 - plan very simple 10-slide presentation).
- Number of biscuits I intend to eat when this is over: fuckloads.
I am now going to spend one hour (that's right, just ONE, out of my entire day) preparing for this job interview.
And then I'm getting out of here.
(It's all about the small steps.)
