    Default How did you do in 2019?

    How many days have you billed in 2019?

    It's been a positive year for me

    Went back contracting at the end of June and in 6 months I have billed 122 days.
    Next year looks like it's going to be a busy one already, so I'm confident I'll bill at least 200 days.

    I guess you set some sort of target at the beginning of the year. How do you guys measure success? Do you measure it in number of days you want to bill? Or is it an earnings target?

    177 days over 4 contracts, but I took some time off when my son was diagnosed with a medical condition

If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    I'd normally aim to bill 220 days. In 20 years of contracting I've had one year just over 100 and two more around 150. 200+ for all the rest, typically around 220.

    Too many, IMHO! Took a couple of weeks off, but I seem to have worked most of it this year.

    Not feeling confident at all about next year, though, but we shall see.

    227 will be billed by the end of December.

    Currently have a PO to the middle of March, waiting to see what the client determines my status to be.

    This year I will brag about how much time off I took, which was a lot less than originally anticipated, I planned to have the whole year off, but out of the blue I got an opportunity in Europe after only 3 months off, so decided to give it a go... so time off

    Then since starting I took another 2 week off... so best year ever since contracting, never had 3.5 month off since 2001....
