Another Fourteen Weeks of SemiProductivity

Back in November, I posted stats on the “things I want to do at home” that I’d gotten done between August 24th and November 29th. They are here.

The summary of that was:

  • 20 hours of catching up on putting things in Quicken and/or paying bills (51%)
  • 7 hours of random things from my projects list (18%)
  • 5 hours of catching up on old email (13%)
  • 4 hours of genealogy stuff (10%)
  • 3 hours of reading (8%)

That’s 39 hours in 14 weeks, or about 2.8 hours per week of productive at home work on things I want to spend time on at home. That was pretty sad.

But, another 14 weeks has gone by. Lets see how the stats worked out for November 30th to March 7th…

  • 20 hours of catching up on putting things in Quicken and/or paying bills (43%)
  • 10 hours of reading (22%)
  • 7 hours of random things from my projects list (15%)
  • 5 hours of genealogy stuff (11%)
  • 4 hours of catching up on old email (9%)

That’s 46 hours! That’s 18% better than last time around. Woo! Go me!

Of course, that is still only 3.3 hours per week. I’m thinking a “reasonable” number for this would be more like 7 to 10 hours per week. Oops.

If I can get to 7 to 10, I think I’d actually be “keeping up” rather than falling further behind on my personal projects each week. We’ll see if I can adjust things to do a bit better the next 14 weeks.
