A typical work day, part 2

9 AM. I spent the bulk of the last two hours in a meeting and now have time to get started on the conversion of the ID number in the project system. I usually check my email once an hour, on the hour, rather than keep email open throughout the day. This prevents distraction and interruptions in “flow time”. So I checked email and was pleased to see that I had no mail upon which I had to act. A co-worker gave me an article on some good “soft skills” interview questions and so I’m going to spend a few minutes updating our wiki site for technical interview questions (we are in the process of hiring for 4 new developer positions within our group). Then I can get some real work done.
