So now I’m getting absolutely serious about quitting my job at this company and well . . . restructuring is what they call it don’t they? I’m repositioning myself in sales and accounts, operations, I give up.
I need to be the guy thinking dynamically if I’m going to keep moving forward rather than stuck in the drudge of this company.
So this is the model I have set up
– This is the printing that needs to be picked up any idea of when it can be expected
– This is packaging that printing needs to go into
– Delivery Instructions
So for tomorrow I’d just have all the delivery instructions laid out. But wouldn’t I just do it myself? Sure, that’s what I did. How are you going to deal with this? Am I really confident that because I’m getting back on top of things, I can now organise in forward advance, so that any jobs coming in can be swiftly dealt with.
Capacity expands, so that someone cruising in for 3 or 4 hours is going to smash it out. If station 2 eventuates, we’ll glide through it. those weeks we make a lot, won’t be so fatiguing, for the obvious benefit.
What about when the system needs to be deployed? What part can I introduce immediately? I reckon just get a worker into the habit of picking up printing and organising delivery. Then it’s a easy jump to posting a notice for the morning of all print jobs, packing instructions and delivery instructions and details.
The only websites we really care about are my artist site and the pirate site, while this site is working, if it aint broke, dont fix it! Whereas the video site still has a year to come into it’s own.
That’s why the websites go to the back of the line, but assistants don’t. assistants, photoshoot and front room are all contributing to the business but not in a profit driven way, but in a way that contributes more to building my investment into returns other than profit and revenue from cd dvd duplication.
So then it means this solely video focused outlook – video production and creative content production.
But the only way to achieve that is to decrease my responsibility by offloading to others, it is essential for my creative production to offload tasks.
What about someone who’s job it is just to come around everyday at 4pm and pick up the printing and cd duplication discs and cases etc and post all the packages. $80. Even days where there was nothing, just get them packing.
How hard is it? Drive to the printers, pick up the printing, go to the post office, pay for postage, go to online sales to pick up supplies, come back, do packing, or any other courier job. It’s not just saving at least 3 hours a week, it’s less mucking around.
Sure, I have to have packages ready at 4pm. Maybe, I need to be able to ask them to come in at 3pm or 2pm sometimes? They can come in and pack for half an hour, then post off. Even paying trademe.
It seems like an excellent idea that would make all the difference at a critical point. at 1-3pm I’ll always be working, but maybe when my courier comes and goes, that’s when I’m knocking off. He can get me a coffee too.
This is all great stuff, in fact we’re still underestimating the benefit of that critical support, every afternoon when things are getting crazy, I will always have a bit of back up, and in those situations I don’t need it, there’s always bound to be something.
