I’ve been a bit quiet blogwise for a few days – busy doing my personal tax return and also the accounts and VAT return for MIPAA Limited. I don’t dislike accounts, but find you really need to dedicate time and I am fitting these in around multi-tasking a million and one other things (let’s not talk about the marking mountain for example). I really do try not to work just to deadlines, but all too often find myself in the wrong quarter of Covey’s time management grid – urgent and important. Anyway, Wednesday is another busy day out of the office – with a committee meeting for MIPAA and then the CIPR qualifications graduation ceremony in London. I’m also collecting my Accredited Practitioner certificate at the event. It will be good to catch up with both committee members earlier in the day and successful graduates in the evening. I’m also looking forward to playing with my new SmartNav system which Phil Hale, new Head of PR at TrafficMaster has arranged to be fitted to my Mercedes. I am sure with the ever increasing traffic on the major roads this will be helpful. I’ll blog more after my first aided journey.
