Sunday Post #52: Getting Ahead, While Falling Behind

Published by


The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly over on the Caffeinated Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news of what happened in your life, what’s coming up on your blog, or recap posts shared.

Things at work are about as crazy as ever. I’m slowly picking at my to do list while at the same time getting ahead where possible and yet feeling like I’m falling behind. This may sound backwards. How can one get ahead but at the same time fall behind? Sounds like a mis-prioritization of work.

Actually, I’m waiting on my Vice President to review and approve some documents. It’s quite annoying having to wait almost 2 months for an opinion on a document likely to take her no more than 15 minutes to review. Yet, here we are. So, I’m working on what I can so I can rush next steps on those documents when I get them back.

I also have the fun of things taking longer than people thought they would. We just keep finding trouble, or one off “quick requests” come through and across my desk.

I have not been able to do much reading yet, at least nothing new. I’ve been re-reading some books to help with the anxiety I’ve been feeling from work. I didn’t help myself much by doing the math to figure out when I need to complete one of those 69 modules for my training course…it came out to 1 module every 1.5 days; that’s calendar days, not work days.
