« The Road Less Traveled | Main | Effort is important, but knowing where to make an effort makes all the difference... »

July 31, 2007



I can relate to the man in the picture!

The picture above looks typical of a government organization.

I started a new job in the Grants Administration section of a public sector organization in 2004. On my first day, they provided me with three manuals, each about 50 pages thick, to read before they would let me do anything.

In addition, I had to document and file details of every interaction that I had with organizations which we funded.

During my employment, I spent about twenty per cent of my time reading proceedures manuals, forty per cent of my time adminsitering grants (i.e. doing my job) and forty per cent of my time documenting what I had done.
