Getting more done.
Over the last week-and-a-half, I have had three articles, one "The Week That Was," and two posts to "My Homewood" published. That level of productivity feels good, especially after a period when I seemed to struggle to produce one or two pieces a week.
I don't know what makes the difference between the two levels of productivity, but I need to get more deeply rooted in getting more done. To put it another way, I need to notice what I'm doing when I'm getting more done, and do more of that.
Here are the articles:
"Summer doesn't mean you can't dress for success"
"Game on: Software company may bring headquarters to Pittsburgh"
"Saturday Diary: Life in the slow lane"
"The Week That Was" is not so much an article as a look back at the week's business news (in the Business Department we call it "Weekback). I like doing them, because they're a chance to have fun, and they force me to read the paper (confession: this newspaper reporter is a magazine junkie. I have just received my first check for writing a magazine piece, from Pitt Magazine, the alumni magazine for the University of Pittsburgh - in fact, my first check for a freelance piece, period. I am excited about that.).
George Carlin is dead, and the only thing I can think of to say is *%$##!!&*@&!! - that would be any two of the "Seven Words You Can't Say On Television."
