The complaint we all have this time of year is reviews. Even more than reviews are self reviews.
I don’t know why they are so painful, but they always seem to rank right below things like cleaning the toilet for the most part. Somehow, even cleaning off the whiteboard to a pristine shine was done before anyone really got done with any of it.
I suppose the biggest thing I have is a tendency to not toot my own horn. I have to fight that urge because this is the time to do exactly that. To move forward requires a bit of it.
Then there are the peer reviews… <sigh/> But you certainly don’t want to short shrift your co-workers so that takes time too.
Then there’s you day job when you need to, you know, actually work!
