Geting it done!

The topic on Flaming Hot! this week, is how do you get it done when you work for yourself? That is a very good question. Most days I have a fairly regular schedule I stick to. In the morning I go through the emails and check for any important ones or questions that need answered. I then get the beads ready to be photographed. Thank goodness Greg takes care of the actual photographing. I do then edit the pictures and load auctions, the daily special, and something on etsy. Then there is the shipping. I get it all done, then off to the post office I go.

It all depends on how much time I spend browsing around the internet, or if we take a walk that day, or morning chores, as to what time I actually get all this done. Usually hopefully by 1 or 2 pm. Then I start torching around 3 or 4 pm, or if I am really felling lazy, around 5 or 6, but that is rare. I admit, most days it is just routine. I have a certain number of things I like to list each day and I am pretty motivated to stick to it.

Greg is much more likely to announce he is going to take a day off. I usually wait until I am exhausted or sick. Not a good plan I know, but it is true. I’m not sure where my motivation comes from. I tend to think of myself as kinda lazy sometimes. Like today. I would like nothing better than to curl up on my couch with a book. I doubt I will actually do it. Instead I am writing about it. We’ll see, I need to load those acutions and get those beads and marbles packages up first.
