One step forward, two steps back?

Feeling somewhat frustrated. Having spent the best part of around 4 days pulling together a compelling case for a new KM strategy for the client, with full budgetary breakdown for the duration of the 3-year programme, I was (a) not invited to the Management Team when it was discussed on the agenda and (b) later advised that they couldn’t agree the strategy without me being there! I’ve since been asked to revise the proposal and make it look like its not going to cost anything (bit of smoke and mirrors here I think).

I haven’t given up yet. Will spend another 2 days glued to my PC and see if I can hide the costs of the programme as I’m required to do. If I look back over the past 7 months, I seem to have spent my whole time writing papers for various ‘important’ groups. This seems to be the  way of things in  the public sector – all paper and no decisions. I can see where the money is going – maybe should have bought shares in a paper-pulping company or something!

The Dissident.

I’m a life-long learner with an insatiable curiosity about life. I love travel, good food, and good company. I’m happy to share what I know with others….even the interesting stuff! My outlook on life is pretty well captured in this quote from a book about the legend of King Arthur: “The best thing for being sad,” replied Merlin, beginning to puff and blow, “is to learn something. That’s the only thing that never fails. You may grow old and trembling in your anatomies, you may lie awake at night listening to the disorder of your veins, you may miss your only love, you may see the world about you devastated by evil lunatics, or know your honour trampled in the sewers of baser minds. There is only one thing for it then — to learn. Learn why the world wags and what wags it. That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting. Learning is the only thing for you. Look what a lot of things there are to learn.” ― T.H. White, The Once and Future King So much to learn, so little time!
