All of the sayings about how fast time goes by no longer seem to be applicable. The pace of life has become indescribably fast as is evidenced by the fact that I have not written in this blog since October, there is a message here. It had been long enough that I had to dig through an old laptop to figure out how to get in here to write. It certainly leaves you with a feeling of inadequacy. However I have obviously triumphed all of these pearls because here I AM and writing.
The next challenge is to get focused enough to write something of importance. Our business continues to grow with the addition of Hec Morton to our staff at the beginning of the year. It is always daunting to add new people because it exposes all of your weaknesses. You believe that you are operating in a fashion of leaving the appropriate footsteps for others to follow behind you. When you add new people the realization that the footsteps you think you have are only in your mind. If they were transparent then others could easily follow and see how you got where you got. This is a constant struggle to ensure that your footsteps have a meaning to someone other than you. One element of footsteps is the flow of technology and its effects on the quality of our footsteps. We have added tracking software in the past year which also is exposing weaknesses within the system. Along the lines of technology flow, scanning has become a standard way in our office to make footsteps. It has improved so much so quickly that when I go looking for scanned of materials in our job folders that are only a few years back and there is nothing there. Then it hits me between the eyeballs, that the reason the data is not scanned was because the scanning technology did not even exist or was not available to us then!! If you do not like or accept change, get over it. If you do not accept change you will get rolled and not in a good way. Till next time.
