Jack of all Trades

Not an entry really…just, well, just a rant.

Sometimes it really sucks being a jack of all trades! I can’t tell sometimes if I am being a “goto guy” or whipping boy.

You get bogged down in so many different side jobs from that the main job suffers. You end up as the go to guy. I am trying to implement limits and as in Getting Things Done, “redefine” my jobs back to what they were originally. Then I can focus on actually getting some results. The fault is not any one persons but in large part it’s mine for accepting the side taskings. Time to stop, and redistribute those existing side tasks. Finish up the ones that I’ve started and can finish in a reasonable amount of time, give the rest back to those who gave them to me.
