Banging It Out and Getting It Done

Last week I kvetched a little about the quality of my work. I was given an enormous project that is about five times the size of what I normally work on with the caveat that I had to turn it around in little to no time.

What I really needed was about four days to do it and to do it well. Instead I received 2.5 days and had to complete that along with all of my regular work.

Now that I have had some time to reflect upon it I feel better about it, but not great. I am good under pressure and I can produce things quickly so I know that relatively speaking the work is solid. However I am also a realist and I know that my competition does not have to try as hard as I do because the client favors them and if I want to compete I need to step it up a little.

This is where my concern came from because I don’t view my performance as having been at the level I want it to be so that I can not only gain their attention but earn their business. Now the proposal has been handed in and the trick is to try and convince them to schedule a meeting to walk through it. If I can make that happen I am confident that good things will happen.

In the interim I am feeling a little frantic because I just had five projects dropped onto my lap and they are all due during the Chag. I am not coming in here Tuesday or Wednesday. It is just not going to happen, so once again I am placed in a position in which I am going to bang it out and hope for the best.

Tomorrow while I daven I’ll ask for many things and at the end I’ll include a special request to help me with this. If you happen to see someone break out into a poor man’s rendition of “If I were A Rich Man” don’t be alarmed it is just me.

    Thanks AWP.


    I write very quickly so it is easy for me to post with this kind of frequency.
