Hey Warriors,

I'm curious- how much work did you really get done today?

Personally- I've only got about 1-2 hours worth of real work so far... so hopefully you guys were more productive.

    I got zero done :-). But I am lazy. Lucky I am outsourcing!

    Surprisingly, even with two kids underfoot; I still got some work done. Like 2-3 hours work. Not bad for a Saturday.

    I only ended up with 3 hours of real work, that netted $180 and probably a new long term client. I'll take it .

    Well, it's Sunday morning for me in Sydney AU, but yesterday I was productive; I completed my entire To Do list (little brag... :-))

    Sadly, this morning I haven't been productive, because my Internet connection vanished for two hours.

    Now it's back, I'm enjoying the WF for half an hour, until it's time to get back to work.

    Hope everyone's having a productive day, no matter where you are in the world...

    Cheers

    But I'll admit weekends are less productive with too many distractions!

      I've started 2 articles today, and I'm finishing of a couple that I did a few days ago so they are ready to go on my website.

      I'm also going to write the first 5 auto-responder messages, a confirmation page, and a thank you page.

      Tomorrow I'll probably start a few articles and finish one from today.

      Then I'm ready to start hunting for traffic. I can't wait.

      There is no weekend for the next few months, lol

    I've done perhaps 4 hours of work today. I've done more thinking on strategy today than anything, which is hard to qualify. I'm spending a bunch of time making sure a new website is set up before truly starting backlinking. Within the next couple days I'll find my real work ethic with that!

    I revamped my website system, cleaned my house, met with my new landlord, had 3 kids underfoot, got keys to my new house, had lunch with my finacee, had new tires dropped off for a mustang my finacee and I are restoring and almost sold our infinity skyline at the dealership. Now, I am awaiting for my finacee to come home, so we can go see our new house and start brainstorming on paint colors. Not much web work, but a busy day none the less.

      I'd been feeling semi-decent about what I'd accomplished until I got to that post. More power to you!

      I've had four kids running around all day - 2 mine, 2 neighbors. They're all boys though and well armed with Nerf guns and swords so I figure as long as I don't hear any breaking glass, I'm good to keep working. Rethinking this...I should have put them to work cleaning the house...

        I had planned to do a lot of work today, but tornado warnings and severe thunder storms got in the way so I didn't have internet access. Ended up playing Scrabble and watching movies instead.

        My "days off" are Tuesday and Thursday, because I have classes those days. I usually still do a little bit of work though.

    I was surprisingly productive. I spent 5-7am (insomnia, gah) building a new site, then 7 - 9am doing keyword research for another affiliate site, and bought the URL. Then I proofread an article I wrote yesterday and submitted it, wrote two other articles, then this evening I've started building the second site, that I did the kwr for this morning.

    Unusually productive day!

    I put in at least 4 hours every day.
    Weekends, major holidays, no day is safe.. haha. Even if you're primarily outsourcing, communicating with your contracted labour isn't an optional task if you have a particular end result in mind.

    Besides...

    In my book, you're either dedicated or you're not. :p

      These two posts surprise me. Personally, I never work Sundays, and Saturdays are when I put in the least amount of time. How do you guys put yourself in the mindset to put such emphasis on weekend work, and do you take it easy on other days of the week?

      I admire the "balls to the wall" work ethic, but couldn't see myself doing it. I need my weekends .

        I tend to just give myself a day or two of 'weekend' in the middle of the week, rather than on Saturday or Sunday.

    Some of the responses in this thread make it sound like YOU SHOULD do IM 24hrs a day, 7 days a week.

    Take a break guys!

    On a saturday, I spend a few hours just to check everything is ticking over, same with a sunday. But I never go over board with cramming work in.

    I was actually very productive today -- probably due to the fact that I've had limited access to the internet lately and I'm trying to take full advantage of the time I have now.

    I just spend more time with family and friends on Saturday. However my brain cannot stop working on Saturday night so I usually spend 1-3 hours online.

    If there is any interesting EPL match, I just lay back and watch them so it is a totally day off for me. Yeah I am another football/soccer junkie.

    Saturday can often be the most productive day for IM'ers that are still holding down a full time job (myself included, kind of...)

    But while I usually do get a lot done, today I just haven't been able to get into it. So I've done nothing. Damn.

    There's still 8 hours in the day... So hopefully I'll get a good 3 - 4 hours in after dinner.

    Well, it's Monday now in my country... my Saturday is always a non-working day for me since I have to at least have a day to release all the pressures and stress that I had from my work. This way, I can avoid getting sick, it's hard to get sick these days since, we can't work at our best..
