You Guessed It

It’s been quite a while since I posted, and as always there’s a good reason for it.

The slightly better times lasted for a grand total of five weeks. For some reason my employee decided he’d be better off not working for me any more. There was the usual saga involving weirdness and general apparent mental health issues, but it all ended in a relatively dull fashion when the employee just walked out, never to be seen again.

All very strange, but all very samey. I knew the optimism of my last post was misplaced. For some reason it’s just not possible for me to be happy for any sustained period of time. Something always goes wrong.

The worst element of all this is there couldn’t be a worse time for it to happen. As far as I was concerned things were working out quite well. I was getting freed from the incessant ball and chain of the phone and the nonsense that continually takes place every day.

And I had successfully replaced it with nonsense from my other business instead. But at least that one has some chance of paying me some decent money in return for the efforts. In theory. I do like that phrase don’t I.

Anyway, the biggest problem is that both businesses are super busy and both businesses desperately need me to be able to concentrate on work for sustained periods. With no support, this just cannot happen during the day, leaving me only with early mornings, evenings and weekends to do stuff.

My business partner is soiling himself at the moment because Monday is a crisis meeting on a project we probably should have delivered last week. I sort of get the blame as I am mostly responsible for shifting the data on it. But it’s impossible for me to do so with my life the way it is. I have been spending nearly every waking moment at a computer. It was never meant to be like this. I have arranged for my old housemate to help and get stuck in, but we’re still some way away. I have been getting stuck into project management, which I quite like, but it’s a bit difficult when I’m not working on it all the time. My colleague is supposed to be doing the PM, but he’s hopeless.

Perhaps I should reassess which business is the one more likely to make me some money. One of them certainly takes up masses of my time for very little reward, and it isn’t my IT business.

What is it they say? The more things change the more they stay the same…?

Sounds about right.
