One of the laws of thermodynamics can be summed up as: Entropy Builds.
I realized that today while doing my “short monthly update” that gets forwarded up the org chart. What started as a paragraph now involves about 3 spreadsheets pulling data from 4 sources and takes at least an hour to do. The worst part is that I see no effective way around this and have to give up and call it the price of organizational growth. Every other month there’s another stat worth tracking and that’s another straw to hoist up on to the camel.
I have no conclusion about this.
