TT #14 Things I Did at Work Yesterday




I did my first TT on things I like about my work. This week, I'd like to tell you some of the things I do on a given day. The thing I like best about my job is that tomorrow will be very different. Here are just 13 of the things I did yesterday:


  1. I wrote three thank-you notes to leaders about the Wiregrass Regional Summit that was held at our College last week.


  2. I drafted a letter to a major donor who completed his pledge to the College's Foundation.


  3. I responded to a required survey on the needs of workforce development programs in our state.


  4. I attended a luncheon meeting of a women's group to which I belong. The program this month was from the club president/librarian who provided suggestions for summer reading.


  5. I had a phone meeting with an employee who is joining our division in a new position.


  6. Wearing another of my hats, I met with a college employee who has specific concerns--can't say more than that.


  7. I met with a staff member to discuss a new program.


  8. I signed half a dozen checks for the Foundation.


  9. I reviewed the agenda for a Foundation meeting early this morning.


  10. I met with a group at the Chamber of Commerce to hear more about an exciting new community educational initiative called Yes We Can.


  11. I peeped in on a Kids Kollege class about Legos that meets in my building.


  12. I discussed a hiring issue with the HR office.


  13. I thought about cleaning off my desk, but it didn't happen.


I can't wait to see what tomorrow brings!

That's a lot to do in one day! Wait was it one day? Sorry for being retarded..... Anyway, you clearly are very busy.

What did you enjoy the most?

Happy TT!

SandyCarlson said...

You had a busy day. Sounds like a rewarding job.

pussreboots said...

Wow. You were busy. Happy TT.

Carol said...

Are you one of those power-exec types? That's a lot in one day!

Ann Bruce said...

I do #13 all the time. One day my mind power will be so awesome that the desk will clean itself.

Di said...

You had me at the thank you notes. A lost art, in my opinion.

Sue said...

Sounds busy :) #13 was one I always had a problem with at my last job. Happy TT :)

Hootin' Anni said...

You do don a lot of different style hats! More power to you...

Now, 'bout that desk of yours?! [kidding]


My 13 is posted, come join me?
Happy Thursday.

Lilibeth said...

Man I'm glad you have your job and I have mine. I teach school, and I love the classroom stuff, but that administrative/secretarial/relationship/society/ kind of work I deplore. Cheers to you!

Clara said...

Sound like you have a great job. Lots of variety always makes it fun.

Thank for stopping by my TT! You'll love the Grand Hotel. Very elegant - and expensive. We loved it.

B Wiens said...

Your job sounds great. No time to be bored....

Happy TT!

I'm MORE than with you on #13. I clean my desk before I go on vacation -- twice a year. That's plenty!

How do you like phone meetings? Do you find them casual and efficient? Or would you rather, if possible, see the person face-to-face? I'm really torn about the new technology. Sometimes I love it, and sometimes … not so much.

Peter Plum said...

Looks like you got a lot done! Thanks for stopping by my TT!

Kay, you work very hard as a Dean! As an adjunct I don't work nearly as hard but since I teach literature I have to do an awful lot of reading! Thanks for visiting me - it was hard picking only 13 states... :D

Celticlibrarian said...

I often think about clearing off my desk, but it rarely happens. :)

I'm glad that you find your job interesting. Happy TT!

Patty said...

Great TT!

bernieg1 said...

Great list, mine is up at Top 13 Boys Names for 2007

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

Man, that sounds like you are kept busy and engaged, intellectually. Especially that Lego part. *grin*

More jobs should be as neat as yours.

Jane Marie said...

Kay, you have won the Burpee Hat Giveaway! Congratulations! Write to me at pianananna(at)gmail(dot)com with your mailing address so I can get it out to you.

Jenny McB said...

Your day sounds productive without interruptions. Does that change when college is in session?

Thank you for stopping by my 13! Have a great weekend.

If I tried to do this list almost every single thing would involve Excel! LOL!

Sounds way too interactive to me! ;) But I'm not a stereotypical accountant type, not me! lol!

Sounds like a busy day! What were the summer reading suggestions? (I'm always looking for new books to dive into!)
