Time management and this blog

So I’m normally pretty good at time management. I even teach others how to time manage. So why do i never get time to write on this blog.

There’s lots of little excuses but there’s one really good reason – and that is I haven’t prioritised writing on here.

So that is going to change. Starting now.

I know there are lots or people reading this website – thousands in fact every day. Some of you come for the Microsoft Excel tips – ok lets face it most of you do. Some others come because you know me and are friends and family and want to see what I am up to. Others come for my photography. And others come for some random weird internet searches.

So today is a personal update. I will be looking to write and post Excel tips (and other office tips) as regularly as possible – in fact I’m prioritising it in my diary right now. Thanks be to Outlook.

And here is a picture of me working hard.

Actually its a picture of my beautiful bride of 17 years walking down Mt Beerburrum with me last week.

Now back to work.

Emergency 2.0 Wiki Working Group

Following on from the success of the website I have been invited to a number of panels, communities and working groups.

Last night I was asked to take some team photos for the Emergency 2.0 Wiki working group committee of which I am a part.

What a comedy of errors!

I set the camera up on the board room table, pointing at the group at the end with the projector screen at the end, set the timer, pushed the button and headed for the end of the table - only to have to leap cables on the way - i made the first tangled in the second and couldn't stop, dragging the laptop running the projector screen to the floor and severing the connection. Thus the photo is of everybody staring at me (to camera left) and laughing - and a purple screen.

The second photo I got there in time, but Eileen decided to lunge for the water bottle at the last second!

After several more spectacular failures including a shot that was ok but with inexplicably a Facebook login screen in the background, we eventually ended up with the desired result. We were all staring at an iPad that had the meeting agenda on it and trying not to giggle!
