I went into last week expecting nothing out of the ordinary. By the end of the week, I had done little in the ordinary. Most of my time was spent working on ways to get more work done in less time. The irony was that I did not get much work done, but I hope the fruit of my efforts change that next week. I was just a little tired of blaming others that our office can’t accomplish what needs accomplishing. “We’re underfunded…We need more staff…If the computer system wasn’t so inefficient…” and so on. So, I spent my time trying out computer solutions to our tasks. Why should I continue to be a human “macro” when I could set some things up to take myself out of some of the equation? We’ll see how it works out this week. I have high hopes.
