"I must create a system or be enslaved by another man's; I will not reason and compare: my business is to create."
- Blake, William
I feel enslaved by another man's system this week. We got the new computer system installed at work, so this week has been all training and madness created by running clinics and double clinics whilst trying to understand how to use the new programs. Everything's just kept piling up, cards, orders, diary transfers, pickups, post and everything else!
So I have just (and I mean just in the past ten minutes or so) finished inputting dozens of record cards information, which needed updated onto the new system. It had all been lying for a week, building up and building up and there hadn't been time to do it, so I had homework. Well, actually it was self inflicted, but I was sick of looking at them cluttering the place up. Also, as the youngest by 25yrs + of the staff, I have apparently been nominated as "tech girl" which I suppose is a compliment.
Actually I think the new system will be a great time saver, but while we're getting used to it and trying to input all the data to make it work properly (for example, we can't send reminders until we have more cards updated, this, in a 21yr old practice, you can imagine isn't easy and may involve going through the cards one by one! ) anyway, I think I will be feeling a lot of the time.
I miss my lazy student/depressed slacker days!
Bed time now, shall answer h2g2 related post at some point tomorrow.
