Is it wrong that I focus and get my work done and have time to play?
Extension seems to be under the impression that you have to work 60 hours every week to get things done. Now some weeks, yes, that is the case, you do what needs to be done for the county, program, etc….Does that need to happen every week?
Most likely not.
If we would stop multi-tasking and focus on one project at a time, we might be somewhat more effective. But I do have to say that Extension is a small part of a larger organization, trying to do many things. Maybe that is why it is so hard to focus on exactly what one person is supposed to be doing.
We have ‘focused educators’ but how well is that focus defined. It may be defined by their programming, reporting guidelines or their title, but when it comes down to it, there is a lot more gray area there than I think should be. I might be alone in that thinking, but I don’t think I am.
