Nobody's Perfect

First of all let me say that I am far from perfect myself. I have a tendancy to procrastinate and I often underestimate how much work it will take to accomplish some tasks.

Now that the disclaimer is out of the way it is time to point the finger elsewhere...

In my capacity as the general manager of the Legend I come into contact with a great many people, groups, businesses and so forth. I have learned that people spend a lot of time in none productive pursuits. As a teacher the day was so clock driven the wasted time was minimalized. (A bad teacher could waste the whole day, but if you were really trying the "lost" time was small.) The pre-planning time is not anywhere near as much in the "real world" There seems to me at least a great deal more winging it going on. It is not necesarily a bad thing, but it can frustrate people who come in from the outside.

I hope the things I do do not cause the same levels of frustration in others that I experience with some of the entities I am dealing regularly.
