Very good question, indeed! And one which could definitely do without the obligatory (but almost always unnecessary) option "Other - N/A".

No, I had no work yesterday.

The same as me.
However, I don't consider it's a good question. What the result of such poll will tell the asker about? Nothing. One day is absolutely not representative. You'd better ask about a month or a year.

Holiday! Jun 20, 2014

Platon Danilov is right!

"However, I don't consider it's a good question. What the result of such poll will tell the asker about? Nothing. One day is absolutely not representative. You'd better ask about a month or a year."

There was a holiday in parts of Germany yesterday, so I went hiking with some friends and didn't even plan to work!

Most days I would say 2, although there have been days with 4 or more recently.

I don''t fully agree. It produces a kind of snapshot showing how busy or idle people are in general.

Another 2.
And I rarely work for more than 2 different clients on any given day.

Just one client can be enough to keep you extremely busy whereas working for four different clients does not necessarily mean a lot of work. I've had days in the past where I worked on tiny projects for several different clients - not exactly what I would call busy.

Usually 1 (I prefer to do on thing at a time), occasionally 2, but rarely 3 or more.

The same customer as the day before yesterday and today.
And I replied to various others (15kwords in total) that I wasn't available until the 26th.

You are right. It is just a crude snapshot. I still think it shows something.
