I had a B-Complex as soon as I woke up, then I had some coffee. Did not help. That’s stuff that’s in Red Bull – I don’t get it. Wings to the rescue!!!! My Hero!
I could focus better enough to get shit done in the late morning and early afternoon. But still, by about 2:00 pm it was getting harder for me to think + I was getting sleepy – Even The Bull can’t fight Zacnaps. I was ready to go to bed around 3:00 pm. (slept from 4-7pm) I used my last hour and fifteen of work to clean up Confluence – I had to do it. It will bug me forever if I don’t … but I am not freaking out about missing or not transferring anything from Confluence to Teams/SharePoint because I likely will have to revise processes anyway – AND if I realize I’m missing anything, I know where to go to get it. So all I did was mark pages as archive – instead of having to read through the page first then decide if I want to transfer. I also made a list of the significant things I must be working on – Wanna hear? … Well, yr’ gonna!
- Cost Mgmt – EVM spreadsheet revision and easier way for me to gather info our CFO requests
- OKR Championing – Keeping my OKRs up to date and keeping everyone else on the proper cycle schedule
- SharePoint Reorg
- Portfolio and Roadmap Mgmt
- Finish roadmap book, presentation and accompanying mockup (Q2-Jun 2021)
- Develop an ad-hoc learning guide for myself
- BPM – Create a learning refresh guide
- PM Processes and Project Lead Guides
- Get caught up on ISO standards
- Update processes based on PMBOK 7 (Q4 2021/Q1 2022)
I still have to work out dates but I am happy with this list. Even if I only get a few hours in on each per week – these will have Brobdingnagian ROI for the organization so I won’t feel like I am doing waste work. I think 7:00 am to 3:00 pm is best for standard work hours and when I get up earlier I can start earlier. Keep in mind, I still need to see how the rest of the week goes. I just don’t want anyone to think that I am getting special treatment or that I am taking advantage of my boss’s kindness. Especially not my boss – that would suck – monumentously!
Questions of the day: Can you die from caffeine poisoning? With FaceID, if someone holds my face up to my iPad while I’m sleeping will it still unlock? (it won’t I tested it, but I don’t know about if my eyes were forced open with toothpicks or an eye vise) Why is everything with Microsoft so damn complicated – #WhyMicrosoftWhy. Why can’t we have open-source vaccine formulas/recipes like how we have open-source software? How come countries have to hoard vaccines when they know their population size – can’t they include some kind of vaccine dosage contingency plan?
My morning pep talk to the brain didn’t work so between 5:45 – 6:42 am I don’t know how many times I chanted, “Samantha! Get up you sexy thing you!” I managed to get to my desk at 7:00 and by 7:08 I was working.
PMBOK 7 date moved again – to Aug 1 now. While I was cleaning up OKRs I found a KR on ISO PM standards that I didn’t work on yet – turns out timing is perfect cause I would have wasted money on one of the previous standards since a new one came out this March (I think).
BTW – Glowbee was up to no good today (righteous high five) lol!!! AND … I made my eye exam appointment. Hmmm, I wonder what waiting room game I’m gonna play this time! I was gonna do Me Journal but my villagers are waiting for me, plus two hours later and I’m already ready to go back to bed. Grrrrrrr.
