You'd think that after doing the same job for a few years you could sort of just switch into "auto-pilot" mode. I find, however, that the longer I do something the more I begin to notice all the things I could or should have been doing. And, of course, when you turn your attention to one thing, some other thing usually suffers for it.
Hardly an original thought, but that's about where I am these days. Between things I have to do and things I want to do... And things I both have to and want to do. Better than being bored, I guess.
