Low energy day

January 11th, 2006 at 09:31 pm

I got nothing accomplished today. Well that's not entirely true, I did get our cable bill paid and set up to draft automatically and I changed my address with my credit card.

But, I've got clothes in the washer that have been there forever, so now I need to rewash them (soured - it's hot here). I'm just hoping that it will be warmer tomorrow morning because I can't for the life of me find any of DS1's pants or my slacks and this morning it was COLD (44F).

I've been keeping track of the money I bring in at work (for the firm). Does anyone have an idea what percentage of my income I should be bringing in? Like if I make $2k/month should I bring in $6k, $10k, more, less, some number in between? I want to have an idea if I'm profitable for them and to what extent so when I've been there a year I can successfully negotiate for a raise.

Speaking of work, my boss will be gone tomorrow mid morning and won't come back until Monday. I'm looking forward to actually getting some work done without him coming to me every few minutes to ask if I've remembered to do x, y or z (things that need to be done, but aren't as pressing as other things) and to tell me to repriortize everything.

    It used to be a rule of thumb that you should make your company 3x your salary. Lately I've been hearing it should be 5x

    Thanks retire. I wonder if that changes depending upon if it is a small company versus a corporation (I would think a corporation would be more because there are so many levels of management). I work for a small lawfirm. The boss owns the building, etc. So, I should feel pretty good when I'm at 4-5x right? That's where I've been the last 2 months. This month doesn't look quite so good (I need some people to die so I can get some probate work, doesn't that sound goulish?).
