Woke up, heart thumping and with a feeling of impending doom, at 3am this morning – my head full of work things I need to get done urgently… before someone twigs that I’m the bottleneck which is causing the delays.
Too few hours in the day.
“Work smarter, not harder” the man said. And I always listen to the man.
So I suggested to my boss that I be more of a colon and less of an appendix, if you’ll forgive the medical metaphor. She agreed. So things should soon just flow across my desk, via my email inbox, without my having to be the one that acts on every single one of them. I can simply review and get actively involved only where necessary to prevent constipation or big piles of shit.
