Overwhelmed with Work - That's a Good thing!

Aug 2, 2007

I am completely overwhelmed with work this week.  The work is gathered up piled up and only once.  I actually plan fairly well, but I've been fortunate enough to have several customers decide to proceed with several websites and blogs this week. 

The overwhelming part is that they all decided to do it at the same time! 

Some of these projects have been in the works for over a year now.  Plus, these are all hitting it right on the same week that I was doing the system integration/upgrade at the LLA.

So this weekend, I started setting up three different websites that were for other people after I just finished a website for myself, SackVick.net. 

I've got one halfway done, bringing the second one up, and  the third was previously established.  I was just supposed to start writing on it, but it had a number of legacy issues with the initial WordPress setup and lack of maintenance (17,000 unregulated spam issues for example!)

The managing company attempted to fix it, but it seems like they made a few mistakes that could cost them their page rank.  So I volunteered my web services to fix that and hopefully save the pagerank from being lost.  But now I'm waiting for them to actually act on my recommendations and to give me access to the system so I can begin to fix things.

On top of all that, my existing blogs have a backlog of articles that need to be written.  So I'm racing left and right to write about 50-60 articles, bring up three websites, complete system integration on the LLA, do my taxes which I extended until August 15, and my wife is on her way to our house here from  North Carolina. 

I'm at the house already been here since Saturday.  She's coming with her sister to pack up a bunch of stuff in the House.   Her father is also coming on Saturday to do some remodeling work on our house for us.  We definitely have a lot of work to do!

So it's rather natural and human will overwhelmed.  I'm writing this article right now while walking the dog in the back yard.  I'm writing this on my Treo 600, recording my voice through my phone recorder which I will thenrun through Dragon Naturally Speaking's voice transcription when I  go back inside.

I mention this because I'm literally using every spare minute of time to work, build up my business and attempt to make a better more balanced life for myself, my family and everyone that relies on me from customers to business partners and more.  Its also in part so that some day we can buy that dream luxury home by the lake.  I've got a very long way to go to climb up the ladder, but I've been up the ladder before and I know the way very well.  The hard work is just part of the requirements to make it to the top, or at least to a nice shelf where I can rest along the way.
