It has been a while since I last made an entry – it has been busy this side and at the office. The month up to closing for the year and the festive season was chaotic. All jobs that had previously been lying about with not much haste now becomes of utmost importance and there is a tangible feeling of panic that sets in when clients realise, hey, this better get done before the new year begins.

Before when pleading was the order of the day to get final proofs and images and content sent through became an onslaught of content in our direction near the date of closing time – who to place at the top of the list of importance? Every client feels they are of the utmost importance and you like to make sure they keep feeling this way – even if it means it gives you sleepless nights and a few grey hairs in the process. Keeping the client happy is something we like to keep maintained but there is always someone that manages to fall through the cracks and whom we have to placate. You realise that this is the order of the day and the nature of the beast, as they say.  You just cannot, no matter how hard you try, keep everyone happy. Ask Jo and Don, they try, they really do, but there is only so much Don and Jo to go around. When it becomes just too much and they start feeling overwhelmed that’s where I come in, here at my home office. I try ease the load where possible and help out as far as my skill set can stretch where they need it to go.

Just before starting the year proper we had a little company meeting to outline where we were hoping to head in 2017, where we didn’t want to be and where we noticed we were going wrong.

It is of utmost importance, especially in a small boutique sized business with minimal staff, stretched way beyond what is expected, to plan, outline and strategies the direction and means in which they plan to head. That saying- “work smart not hard”- has never been more salient.

 

For this remote worker 2017 is going to be rather challenging and will involve an abundance of time management and clever shuffling of work space and time slots.  We have a new family member that will be making an appearance in just under 6 months’ time, a member that is sure to create much chaos, life changes and priority shifts. Before this new member makes their appearance this remote worker hopes her brain does not become too mushy in the process. My work diary (thank you Jo) and exam pad, I think, will become my constant companion where I will have to jot everything down for fear of forgetting even the smallest thing. Just the other day I forgot my online banking password and had to go foraging amongst my old diaries trying to locate where I had written it down. Let’s take into account that I am a regular online banker so forgetting this password, that I use on an at least 2x weekly basis should not have been forgotten due to repetitive use – this does not bode well for me. I have a feeling I will be getting many “slack”(www.slack.com) messages with little reminders from Jo and Don. Let’s all be thankful that heading our company lays firmly on Jo and Dons shoulders.

 

2017 is going to see both Anomalous and WPZA – our WordPress Maintenance business end of things- doing a complete spring clean of tactics and implementation. Keeping our skill offer more in line with quality over quantity and keeping ourselves from not stretching ourselves too thin, rather offering less in service options but with undiluted implementation.

2017 is sure to be an interesting year for all of us and we hope our clients get to reap the benefits of our new mind set and service offerings : working smarter, offering less in options yet delivering so much more and, most importantly, appreciating our service and ourselves more which in the long run makes for happier workers which also makes for happier clients and a first rate service.

 

Hope 2017 is successful for our clients, old and new.

Remote Worker – entry 3

workfromhome

All is still well with this remote worker. Really well. I have a daily schedule set up and implemented. It’s all good. I have noticed though, one little thing since becoming a remote worker. It’s not anything serious, but was brought to my attention by none other than my husband and daughter just the other day.

I have become a recluse apparently, preferring to stay at home to leaving the house. I have gotten myself into such a comfortable little scheduled groove, that any deviation from it causes anxiety in my structured stay-at-home working environment. I know I have to leave home at whatever time to collect offspring from school and the such, but any deviation or anything that makes a break with the norm, causes much discomfort in my world.

My routine is down to a very comfortable order, an order that keeps my world orbiting at a very comfortable and orderly speed – as it should. Why would anyone want to change this?

Wednesday remains my usual away from home and in the office with real people outings. Is this not enough exposure to the real world? Does one really need more?

Chit-chat, apparently I have lost the art of it – did I even have it before? Apparently I did, well, it’s gone now they say. Do I miss it? No! Didn’t even know I had it so can’t really miss what I didn’t even know I had. Though I must admit, where previously it would not have bothered me, now, the thought of sitting next to someone I do not know and being expected to actually converse with them fills me with dread. I have no idea how to break the ice anymore.

On the other side of the socially awkward coin is the verbal Diarrhea. I sometimes find myself talking about anything that pops into my head and more often than not staring back into the eyes of someone that looks just a little afraid and confused. I think most times they look just a little tempted to run but being polite ,remain, in the hope it stops soon and their ordeal ends. I have encountered quite a few of these situations, so maybe, just maybe, my husband and daughter are on to something.

To combat this new social awkwardness I have implemented the “checking in” schedule. It’s via whatsapp, no actual one-on-one…this would be too hasty, baby steps first. I, with regularity, inquire as to a persons well being, a person I may only see in person once in a while but whom I feel needs regular contact with me as to let them know I am still very much alive and well and thinking of them. I even go so far as to inviting them over HERE for a coffee and catch up. It is working well and I have many whatsapp friends, friends that do not ask me to go anywhere – they are relationships that are mutually beneficial and respectful of my newly acquired social awkwardness.

Being a Remote Worker, though not escaping a few snags, is by far the most agreeable of decisions that was taken by me and on my behalf. I could not fathom doing it any differently as it affords me more concentrated work time instead of driving to and from an office and allows me the freedom to absorb any of life’s dramas or circumstances when they place themselves at my feet.

Today’s technology caters to this new working trend and allows a remote worker to keep in contact with other co workers. As long as you have WiFi capabilities there is no need to miss out on any work tasks or communications. I have found slack to be my work friend and fellow co worker while at the home office, keeping myself and my fellow geographically challenged co workers on track with work tasks and even a little gossip when it pops up.

If you search the web you will find so much out there to assist remote workers who want to make their remote office productive and for it to remain permanent without scrimping on productivity, communication and quality. For instance, here are just a few suggested tools that one can utilize : Asana, Glip, Quip and Dropbox. There just isn’t any excuse to not be able to work remotely if your system is set up and you are able to self delegate and hold yourself accountable.

This Remote Worker is getting behind with her schedule so had better end off here.

It’s been a few months now that I have been doing the remote worker thing and it’s working out really well. I first thought I would get lonely, sitting here all on my own with no one around to chit chat with but I have discovered that I am actually pretty efficient when alone as I am easily distracted by others and I sort of like my own company and that of my canine babies. The only thing to distract me here is my dogs, my husband when he is doing his admin days in his home office and the constant, back of the mind thoughts of “sh*t, there is a pile of laundry and dishes that still need doing”. Mondays,Tuesdays and every alternate Friday are short days as kiddies need collecting, homework needs supervising and my version of a homemade wholesome meal needs prepping.The other days are full days – like full until it gets dark, depending on the work being done and how long one of my pre-project melt downs take, kind of full days. These melt downs are an intricate ingredient to me accomplishing something new and challenging.

Exhausting but necessary.

Jo and Don have become accustomed to me not being in the office too, they no longer pine after my vivifying presence. I don’t know I feel about this. Having your “viviness” forgotten does not emit warm fuzzy feelings within me. Apparently they get more done without me there too. Luckily I can transmit some of my “viviness” via slack, skype, email or whatsapp – the joys of modern communication and the many ways to share ones “viviness”.

I’m sitting here, typing this whilst listening to the fish tank humming, my dogs ripping the cr*p out of my newly planted garden and the cars whizzing by on the main road into Hermanus. I feel lucky to have the opportunity of working from a home office and not having to drive to my office, get dressed into something socially acceptable and instead work in my ugliest pair of stained jeans with my daughters slippers on and popping into my kitchen every so often to put on another pot of coffee. The way I see it, either you pay rent monthly for a home or pay off a monthly bond – you want to at least be in the place for more hours in the day than not. Seems insane, right, to be away from the place you spend most of your paycheck on monthly? I’m getting my monies worth by working from home. At least this is the way I see it, I know many disagree and would be horrified to have to spend each and every day, morning till afternoon or evening stuck at home, never clapping eyes on another person, just themselves and their computer screen for company.

Maybe I’m becoming a recluse? I think I might be because I am thriving in this environment – absolutely loving it!I even have potting trays with stuff growing from them, which I tend, admire and talk to in my “get up and stretch” breaks.

The kids love it too as this means mommy has the time, when the inspiration grabs hold, to prepare them something yummy for after school nibbles.I get to do this now – it’s fabulous.

The dogs love it. Before they were left alone at home for hours in a day, now they get to sit with me in my office and have me around all day long – they hardly get the chance to miss me as I am mostly always around – this can only be terrific for them too.

Life as a remote worker is good. I can find no negatives worthy of a mention – well maybe the fact that I miss out on coffee and cake and other nibbles that get enjoyed by Jo and Don and co during their mid morning coffee breaks but this I can live with, it’s a small sacrifice to make for the all the positives that being a remote worker allows me to enjoy. I will just have to make sure they have something to offer when I go for my bi monthly office check in – the offering will have to be really scrumptious.

So, from this very happy and content remote worker – Adios Amigos! Popping into the house now to make me another cup of coffee and to put on another pair of socks to warm my cold feet.

Patience, it’s bitter but its fruits are sweet…or so they say.

Patience is not one of my most easily come by qualities. It has eluded me for many years but age has brought me closer to its sweet fruits.
I sometimes “fake it till I make it” in certain situations and many assume I am this patient, calm and easy going chick. I’m anything but. Inside I am kicking and screaming and cursing – “Let me out”.

Work has taught me to be patient with certain people. Don keeps reminding me that patience with “special” people is a virtue and I must work on it. I struggle with it daily.

Patience when my children are tugging at my Explode-a-meter can be trying but then I remember they are kids and it’s what they do when they are bored or moody. I just think back to when they were cute and chubby, look into their gorgeous blue eyes (my children are shockingly good looking specimens) and forgive them for trying to test mommy’s patience.

Patience when shopping. Now this one freaks me out, like when two ladies of leisure decide to stop side by side in the aisle and have a proper natter about something and pretending to not see me coming their way, hurried and harassed down the aisle towards them. I stop, wait patiently, after saying “excuse me, can I pass?” , politely, as my mother taught me while absorbing their annoyed up and down stare…like I had the audacity of being there at that exact moment and breaking up their little tea party. Its moments like this that when the little voice in my head really gets hysterical and tries to force out some select words in their direction. But….I stomp that voice down, smile and say, “why, thank you” and go on my merry way. Grinding my teeth, clenching my jaw.

The dentists love me. They say I am chipping away at my teeth and destroying the integrity of my chompers. Falsies in a few years I’m thinking. I’ll have nice, perfectly white ones…can’t wait.

I wish I had the patience to sit and actually enjoy some sort of beauty that surrounds me but I get impatient…I mean something needs to be done, there always is, and it can’t possible wait till later. As I try and sit and enjoy looking at a mountain or another view my list in my head is growing to the point I start getting short of breath, my skin itches and I want to start crying. Impatience to get going usually wins but I am getting better at it. Just the other day I sat for 10 minutes looking at a family of Franklins. It almost killed me but I did it.

Impatience at service providers. I shan’t name names but…hint…they promise to enrich your life. Now these people have really tested my patience. I don’t know if I should maybe send them a thank you email.

Another service provider gem – my mobile phone providers. These people are such darlings, really care and go the extra mile, so condescending – nothing opens the patience flood gates like them. I shall send them a thank you email too. They have really put my patience meter to the test – they deserve my thanks.

I should go and sit down somewhere quiet and reflect but I haven’t got the patience for that right now – I have things to do and my list is getting longer by the minute.

Entry 1

So, it was decided that I should work remotely, save for one morning a week where I would go into the office to touch base, have any meetings that needed to be held and converse with actual real people. This idea has me excited as I am most productive when left alone, in my own world and schedules with nothing to divert my attention…like coffee and dunker breaks, gossip and anything else that may take my attention away from the tasks at hand..also, it leaves me the space to have my usual “holy snot balls, I forgot how to code”, pre project meltdowns with no witnesses.

I have mentioned before that these are vital to the completion of projects – it forces, kicking and screaming, all the knowledge and creativity needed. It’s exhausting but we all have our processes..mine happens to involve a touch of foul language, snot and tears, with a little hair pulling added for extra dramatic flair. Life is nothing without a little dramatic flair.

Today my day started so swimmingly well. Billy allowed me to stretch and kick my way into the working day with my usual (but recently neglected) tae bo early morning session. Billy knows me so well and manages to send me off on my day ready to take it on like a BOSS….with, hopefully soon, buns of steel. Oh, Billy, what would I do without you?

After Billy had his way with me I did the fastest house sweep through this side of the Overberg, hacking, as I went on my way on my dogs hair balls – eish, must remember to move things about and remove mounting hair balls hidden under stuff. Note to self : do this tomorrow after Billy’s Boot Camp workout.

I managed to put a load of washing on and hang stuff washed yesterday morning that I had forgotten about – it was Sunday and Sunday is for rest. All this before 8:30am. I certainly do rock.

I have to cram in as much as possible on Mondays and Tuesdays and every alternate Friday as my babies return home from school at 2pm and all ideas or attempts at work are put aside, in its place, lunch, homework, dinner prep and general chit chat and hanging with the kiddies.

So far my only concern is how they will miss me at the office. It will be an adjustment period for them and a small period of mourning but it will make them stronger and build even more character.
I have faith they can do it.

Many, I am sure, have been observing over Facebook and other social media avenues the veld fires that have ravaged our mountains and greedily eaten away at our fauna and flora over the weekend. Hermanus, Meerensee, Botrivier, Houw Hoek etc were badly burnt sending many animals scurrying away in fear..many not making it.

unNatural disasters such as this manages to expose the many people out there willing to lend a hand, renewing our faith in human decency and kindness where before we may have lost hope just a bit.

unNatural as it is expected that at least one of these fires was started on purpose, for what reason I shall never understand fully. It would take a pretty debased human being to ignite a fire with the express purpose of watching everything be annihilated in its path for the sheer hell of it. I am not alone in the desire to be left alone in a room with these individuals with a weapon of justice in my hand and to mete it out without fear of being disturbed or held back. A just deserved punishment for those with the sole purpose of destruction, death and ruination – what would be the best punishment for individuals like this?

This flaming hot activity over the weekend managed to yet again prove the importance, power and significance of social media. I managed to keep updated on the various fires on a minute by minute basis. People keeping people updated with imagery and commentary. Before anything was mentioned on the radio I knew step by step what was being done and by whom. How did we manage before social media sunk its information congested claws into us?

I know many a purist that stays far and wide from social media as they feel it is depraved and exposes us to far too many evils but my response to them is – you still have control over your senses and if you choose to use social media to fill your head with nonsensical rubbish, that is your doing – you need not take part, no one is forcing your hand to read fatuous rubbish. Be discerning with what you cram your head with, this choice has not been taken from you.

I use social media for both business and personal use and find it rewarding and one of the most powerful tools if used correctly and intelligently.
Anything good can be used for inane or unsavoury purposes – it is the way of the human to make what was once good and make it bad but the choice is ours whether the rest of us follow suit.

Use the tools on hand with purpose that is driven by need for gaining and sharing knowledge.No one has forced your hand to do otherwise.

It’s not often we get little gifts sent to us from clients( Discover Great Coffee Club) so when they do arrive we toss civility to the side and rip into the package of preciousness with much enthusiasm and childlike delight.

Christmas came early for us, here at Anomalous, in the form of a box filled with caffeine delight, a Lindt chocolate (with sesame seeds so must be healthy), and a magazine to read whilst consuming the aforementioned goodies, packaged and sent by Iain & Melanie of True North Media.

Don made a great show at performing the task of brewing one of the bags – our first being the Rwanda & Ethiopian original blend from Motherland Of Coffee. Whilst brewing this blend he mentioned to himself out loud what a pity he was not a master brewer and he was not paying proper respect to the blend with his “layman” brewing skills. Jo immediately told him to put these thoughts aside as he was 1. A developer of all things Computer related, not coffee and 2. He had no time to learn the art of coffee making as point 1 left him no spare time to do this and he would have to make do with his “pedestrian” coffee machine for the time being and to put this aspiration on his bucket list for another time. With pout firmly placed on face he continued on his way brewing with in-proper machinery and lackluster skills.

His lack of skill must have been purely in his head and the machine not as pedestrian as thought…or..the blend is fool-proof and just that good because we thoroughly enjoyed our cup of caffeine gratification – every last drop of it. It was neither too strong, nor bitter – the perfect symphony of caffeine kick and taste. I think we shall be swapping our usual early morning, “before we can even think about working” cup of pod coffee with the (obligatory) froth that Don has to include for some original Rwanda & Ethiopian blend every morning.
We have 4 other blends to taste and we cannot wait for the ceremonial brewing.
I’m just wondering when Don will break the seal of the chocolate and share it out among the rest of us.

CUSTARD-SLICES

If anyone has followed any of my previous posts you would see a pattern that may have formed – my love hate relationship with my dear ol’ friend – Bootstrap!

There is a new version out, did you know this? I’m still getting to drips with the previous version, dammit and now they bring out another!
The entire issue with my relationship with bootstrap is that due to the awesomeness of Anomalous and The Brain ( aka Don), wanting, no, needing to pass on his knowledge to the rest of us is that I never get a good block of time to work on IT as we offer clients such a wide range of services, my favourite being analytics (love those graphs), anything SEO related and online presence – I’m comfy here…this is my hood.
The Brain was smiling, as a cat would that had just pounced on a little mouse after a long hard chase, just the other day, and I know from past experiences that he reserves these species of smiles when he has something to tell me that he knows will make me want to eat an entire custard slice whilst scratching the hives that will inevitably burst forth when under pressure. I think he likes these occasions just a little too much.
Jo immediately goes and rummages through her medical supplies for anti-itch creams and lotions.
HE wants me to get acquainted with PHP!

Now, like most others in this industry, I realise the importance of being an all-rounder, I really do but there are certain sectors of functionality that should just stay in The Brains corner. There is a reason why he is The Brain, right? Jo and I may as well name ourselves, Brain 2 & 3. Jo and I are quite okay with HIM getting the accolades and praise – we don’t mind being the busy worker bees in the background. It flies quite well with us. We prefer it. HE mustn’t go messing with what works.

It’s like taking a perfectly good, classic chocolate bar that has been a firm favourite with many a people, for many a year and going ahead and inserting another, funky ingredient – it’s not right. It worked before – why mess with it?

Now, before many accuse me of not liking change, not going with the flow and not rising to any challenges – I say, sit down, keep those thoughts and accusations to yourselves – I’m the queen of change and rising to such. I live my life ready to take on change, uncertainty and challenges. Just ask those in my inner circle (it’s not many but like Jo says, rather quality than quantity) my life is the very definition of challenge and constant change. It’s how I roll. It’s my funky tune.

But, I go forth, one hand scratching a hive and the other firmly placed on my trusty mouse, reading up on Bootstrap (the new version) and PHP – my future cause of hives and consumption of custard slices.

Recently we finished the development of the new Bidvest Insurance Website for Sugar the Agency.

Sugar’s spec to Anomalous was speed, the site had to break the 800Kb mark, this was easily achieved we lazy loaded the larger pictures in the carousel to improve the end user experience and keep the initial load time very low.

The project has been developed in WordPress, using standard WordPress features so the client can keep the site easily up to date. We used extensive custom fields that are placed inside the template so there is almost no way a page can be broken by the end user.

The Bidvest site is a great milestone for Anomalous.
