professional programming

Updated 1 day ago.

I'm a couple of weeks into my new gig as a professional freelance programmer. The work is interesting of course, as I expected it to be. The hard bit is actually the table stakes for any consultant: time tracking.

I've had to learn to track my time, charge it to customers and projects, be OK with leaving the clock on while I get a drink, notice when I've switched task, all that stuff. For someone famously unaware of the passage of time (ADHD represent ✊) that's been a challenge, but I think I'm getting there.

Now that's sorta in hand, I'm looking forward to getting into some really meaty projects and furiously creating value for the shareholders 😎
