How many hours do you work?

Prague Astronomical Clock

Officially I work around 28 hours a week.   Well that’s the hours I invoice my clients for anyway.  9.30am to 6pm Monday to Thursday with a lunch break long enough to walk the dog and eat something nourishing.

Sounds great doesn’t it?

The reality is slightly different…

If you’re working on an e-learning project, you can’t just switch your brain off at 6pm and totally forget about it.  Inspiration can strike at any time!

It might be a conversation you’re having with a friend, something you see in a magazine or just something you notice when you’re out and about.  It all gets added to the mix.  And then your brain starts ticking…

I have found that getting the idea out of my head and stored safely somewhere else helps me to switch off.  I use whatever I have to hand, a scribble on a piece of paper, a note on my phone, a quick photo to remind me.  Just make sure you know where to find it!

So in answer to the question, how many hours do you work?  It’s not so easy to answer after all.

What would your answer be?
