You know what they say. In times like these, the most important thing you can do for yourself is hold onto the job you already have. Thatís what I worked on today. I donít think I let my frustration show when the Boss asked for a cost report that would take me away from the Big Project. Iíd planned to spend this day getting as much done on that as I could, but I cheerfully changed course. What the Boss wants, he gets. Itís a matter of survival.
In the end, I satisfied myself by getting both done. I gave the Boss his cost report, and I got through another one of those complicated, convoluted spreadsheets that make up the backup information for the Big Project. Iím about three uninterrupted days away from being finished with the project. Which means that Iíll be done in about two weeks, as there is no such thing as an uninterrupted day. Not in this world.
