I’m back at the office after a week of training & conference, a week of being sick, and a week of vacation. I’m delighted that I cleaned my desk & email before I left; that made it a LOT easier to ease back into my routine.
Yesterday was spent cleaning up, filing expense reports, and doing little random things. FWIW, I had 258 emails in my inbox, although I was checking my email some during that first week; a first pass got it down to 101, and I ended the day at about 10, including what I’d received over the course of the day.
Today…well, there’s some more of all that, but I did print up my notes from the Google Analytics training. I’m hoping for a chance to read through and condense it into a report for my boss and a to-do list. I took all my notes here and have them saved as draft posts; if my notes turn into something shareable (ie, not too much internal info) then I’ll post it here.
Tomorrow I’m planning on doing the same with my Drupal Summit notes, which are already available here in live-blogging form.
All of that, hopefully, should provide some redirection on my projects for the rest of the year and for 2011. During the whole week, I kept realizing all the back-to-basics things that I want to be doing. I’ve spent most of the last five years constantly surging forward into new areas; now it’s time to review, to assess, to clean up and polish. I’m looking forward to it.
(Plus I read Rocket Surgery Made Easy while I was sick, and I’m inspired to do more usability testing!)
