The word ‘today’ nearly ruined my life today.

It turns out; I make a shitty admin assistant.

I suck at sending out emails to the right people, or making up name tags. I am absolutely shitty at making mass photocopies for meetings. Invariably I ruin it by not hole punching things right.

I am fabulous at setting up process, ordering people around, making sure things get done. I am just really shitty at doing the nitty gritty myself.

I shouldn’t be. It’s easy stuff. How hard is it to create little lists and send emails out to people the day off, instead of the day prior to? It’s easy peasy stuff. It’s just that for whatever reason my mind couldn’t be bothered.

You know what this means.

I am a genius.

Now if only I could just go ahead, unlock my crazy brain, write the fabulous novel that every blogger secretly intends to write, get famous like the Harry Potter lady, and never have to be bothered with doing admin crap again……

Hmm...I'm too much of a control freak so I excel at all parts of the process because I don't trust someone not to mess it up. Mebbe that's why I don't have direct reports; I suck at delegating. This blog has only served to reaffirm why I don't.

LOL @ RPEs and the president comment. Well, bumbling up the details could really make you a candidate for U.S. Presidency. Bush is walking proof.
