I had my birthday this last week which was pretty great. Brunch with the fam and got a handful of gifts (stuff on the “in” side of the equation). I got a new game (Pandemic: The Cure), a much-needed fairway wood, a great shirt, and a workbook to work on my cursive handwriting. All things considered it was a reasonable collection of things coming in. In fact, I had planned for more stuff to be coming in this week.
On the flip side, this fueled a big push this week to get rid of even more stuff. We blew away our number by over three times the shed we targeted. I’m quite surprised at how easy it’s been to find this quantity of stuff to lose. Still it goes a long way to validate the entire effort.
In fact we had enough stuff to warrant another trip to Goodwill. A shorter line this week, but we waited first in line for quite a while. We got a decent little show while the unloading crew played a game of Tetris with six chairs that didn’t really want to fit into THIS woman’s SUV.
Grade This Week: A
Despite a busy week filled with travel and demos, we still found some time to dig in and find a ton of stuff.
Overall Grade: B
We’re ahead of pace right now. More has come in than anticipated, but the overall in/out is tipped well in the right direction.
Thoughts on the metrics
No new thoughts this week.
No work travel scheduled. The gross and net shed are moving north this week.
|Gross Shed||Net Shed|
|Week 3 Target||14||7|
|Week 3 Actual||48||40|
|Week 4 Target||20||15|
