Invoices

Today’s task is boring, even hateful. Doing invoices. As with all great ironies, this ought be a task we revere look forward to and basically enjoy. ‘Payment’.

Given we often forget the important stuff we all know. I sometimes write a reminder and stick it to my office wall.

Here’s my pic: (Art’s never been a strong point)

Yep, I’m reminding myeslf that this somewhat laborious task is actually a cause for celebration, the celebration of hard work as we collect our earnings.

Startups struggling with boring stuff – remind yourself why it’s important!

    It’s the boring and unglamorous tasks that keep the business ticking. To stretch the example I think of all the activities Brisbane City Council undertakes, such as the Riverfestival ( http://www.riverfestival.com.au ).

    This is a very high profile event and brings together over 1 million people. Compare this to rubbish collection each week – nowhere near as exciting or cool. However consider the impact of not running the Riverfestival, to not collecting the rubbish for a few weeks. I’d rather skip the festival.

    I for one love creating invoices, but there may be slight touch of bias. :)
