It’s hard to take over the world when you sleep 20 hours a day.
I would say that I haven’t had time to write because things have been so hectic, but… that would be a lie. Something I’m trying to avoid on here. Truth is- I was too tired/lazy/bored to write anything useful. So I didn’t try.
Not that I have much to say now either, but at least I’m back at work. And yes, I caught up on over a week’s worth of work in 3 hours. Not bad. Not good either.
I’m sure there is more work for me to be doing. Though I can’t for the life of me figure what it could be. It isn’t that I’m lazy at work. It is just that I get things done so damn fast. Of course I skip about 80% of the steps that some other OCs do, but I consider them useless after about a week. 😛 I’m not doing brain surgery or solving world hunger over here.
I’m answering emails. Posting pictures. Uploading new information. Updating old information.
You know- the drudge’s work. 🙂
I know there are a lot more CEOs, Managers, and Supervisors that are tech savvy coming into the business world. Many think that they don’t need an OC, Administrator, or Secretary. But the truth of the matter is- they do.
You know when you call the office and some poor guy answers the phone who says they’ll pass the message along then you never hear from that person again. That’s an office without an OC. You know when you get the line that your paperwork that you sent via email got lost. That is an information center without an OC.
There is no one who is actually doing the information management. There is no one who is actually seeing that messages get to where they are supposed to go. There is no one who is actually ensuring that emails are forwarded to the right person.
Hell, most of the time you have to wade through the machines before you get to that poor guy who barely has the telephone connection to be understandable.
For the most part the job of being the Information Manager has been rolled up into other jobs that fall under the umbrella term of customer service. That is like saying the traffic cop’s job is under the umbrella term of homicide. Two vastly different systems.
I think I’ll stop this line of thinking. It sounds way too much like I’m trying to become a politician. I’m good, but I’m not that good. 😛
