Iím not going to complain about being overworked today (not after complaining about being underworked yesterday), but the work load has been amped up appreciably, and Iím pretty sure I know why.
During the ten days between the time I got the letter announcing the audit and yesterday, I focused all my energy and attention on preparing for the audit. No, thatís not right. I gave whatever energy and attention I had exclusively to the audit, without thinking much about other things that I should have been doing. It wasnít that I spent all my time on the audit, just that I didnít spend any time on anything else. Because, you see, I had to get ready for the audit.
And now it all comes crashing down in an avalanche of unpaid bills, and spreadsheets the Boss requested a week or more ago. I knew I couldnít get it all done today. Thatís why I didnít even try. Thatís the other reason I canít complain about being overworked. First, I moaned yesterday about how exhausting it is doing nothing. And second, I did it to myself.
