Pickety pick pick

Everything I’m doing in my new position at the moment can be categorized as “hurry up and wait” type of tasks. Everything requires someone or something else to respond before I can move on to the next task. Whether it’s scheduling a butt-load of events or trying to register at a funding website, it’s a lot of of small tasks that make me feel like slowly but surely I’m pecking my to-do list to death.

Pick pick pick – 1 thing done. Peck peck peck – file it away to pick at it some more tomorrow.

All day. Every day. It’s a good learning experience I think, but it’s maddening.

    Hmm do you work for the military? 🙂 “Hurry up and wait” is something I read about a lot in reading about soldiers in my military history studies.
