Running to keep up

Funny how accomplishing things leads to even more on your plate.

Sometimes administration feels like fighting a hydra. You've got a task in front of you, and as soon as you make any headway, four more tasks come as a result. I'm definitely in that mode right now.

I started this week with around 25 items on my 'to do' list. I've accomplished several, and at last count I was at 37. Maybe I'm walking the wrong way on the escalator? In any event, I'm very, very glad that I read Time Management for System Administrators. Heck, without that, I wouldn't even know that I had 37 things to do. Deciding whether ignorance is bliss is left as an exercise to the reader ;-)
