Tuesday Truisms: Paperwork

As always these are just random thoughts I think throughout the week....maybe having to do with a theme.  Enjoy....or not, I'm mildly annoyed this evening.

"Paperwork is the one thing I am bad at (as in keeping up and not procrastinating) and almost always necessary for everything in life.  It's just not fair....introverted people or people with social anxiety can find work at home or in cubicles and are happy, Type A people have a variety of professions to get into and be the top dog if that is what their hearts desire is, but if one's real weakness is staying on top of paperwork, it doesn't matter what job you have, you're basically screwed for life"

"In order to get a good final result, one should almost major in 'how to B.S. a report to sound a certain way without downright lying'!  (because boy whether or not I work in the public schools or in outpatient clinics or acute hospital care etc.....the report can make or break whether or not a person qualifies or whether insurance will accept or deny to pay for services)

"Throw in bureaucracy along with paperwork and all hell can break loose if the paperwork is not checked correctly"

"Nothing gives people a collective headache like paperwork; making sure it's all there, groaning when things can't happen because one piece was thrown in or out at the last minute, try to work it out when all you want to do is throw your hands up in the air"

The beginning of the year is always like that....waiting for Cums to arrive, missing paperwork & so forth & so on...

One day at a time...one foot in front of the other...

If you had Miss Lebda in high school, she would have taught you how to get through in book critique, report, etc. She D'd us through her class and then she told us how to write a report without reading a book, etc. It got me through my bachelor's and my master's. However, she did not teach us to get through the paper pile...she couldn't! I still remember how her desk looked!
