When I thought about all the things I had to do today, I didnít know where to start. The Boss took care of that problem for me. First thing this morning, he faxed me a request for a cost report. Suddenly, I didnít have to wonder. I didnít have to worry about how to pay bills (or whether to get started on the interim six-month financial report he asked me for in June that I havenít got around to yet).
It was going to be a heavy data-entry day, and that suited me fine. I didnít have to do much thinking, just typing. I did have to get all the digits in the right order, which is sometimes a challenge. It was like this: do the check record, do the cost record summary, do the cost report. I knew it was going to take all day (and I was going to make it take all day even if it didnít). It was the best thing that could have happened, on a day when I had lots to do and no power of concentration, not even enough to decide what to do first.
