I'm rounding out how many hours I would typically allocate to certain functions each week and this is what I came up with off the top of my head. My boss asked me to come up with a list of hours I spend on tasks each week to determine my workload. We are considering getting a junior level guy to take care of the desktop support stuff so I can focus on the virtualization/networking/phones.

How do you guys allocate your time for a typical week?

Email/Spam 8
Blackberry 3
PC support/Viruses/thin-client 7
Backups 2
Printers 2
Virtualization/Storage 9
Networking/Firewalls/VPN 10
Servers (build/monitor) 6
VOIP 10

I work from home so here is mine:

Drinking Monster or other energy drinks-5
Reading work related e-mail-1
Reading work related e-mail on the beach-4
Browsing the web, sometimes work related-5
Mountain biking-10
Playing x-box-5
Being dropped into completely random consulting jobs with little information and high expectations-20

Ah, THATS why they keep paying me!

I have nearly the same schedule only I don't have a beach near me. I just change the beach time to nap time.
