Today has been mostly a day of kleggich, as will tomorrow. Checking timesheets, completing on-line OHS&W modules (and checking that staff have done the same), writing the monthly report are all things that aren’t high on the list of things that I like to do. But it’s close to the end of the financial year, and I’d like to have a relatively clean administrative slate going into the second half of the year. The only thing on that list that was completed was the monthly report but, being the biggest task, it feels like the rest of it will be just mopping up.
The report is necessary as a reporting mechanism of course, but is also useful in that it allows reflection on achievements for the month. The rest of it could be lost, and I think that the world would continue safely on its course with nary a wobble. And, in the 21st century, I can’t believe how much paperwork is actually still on paper……..
