A little insanity....
I heard someone say once that working in government requires a little bit of insanity. That is oh so correct. I have been in government service for more than nine years now, and it just feels that I lost more than a couple of I.Q. points along the way. If anyone ever ran a private company the way a government agency is run, that company will run itself to the ground in no time flat. Somehow, common sense, sentido komun, appears to be a very scarce resource.
Our office's President and CEO has just been appointed to another post. No news yet on who gets to assume the position he vacated, though a number of names of possible replacements have already been floated around by the rumor mill. In my nine years of working in this organization, I've served under three different heads, all with varying management styles. Whenever there's a change in leadership, there's always the shakeup that inevitably follows. Sometimes the changes do good, and sometimes they even make the situation worse. Without a doubt, adjustments will have to be made by everyone. I guess the uncertainty tends to make everyone...especially those who lack security of tenure...a little jittery.
Not much more I can add to that. Suffice it to say that our office will soon have a new leader. And change will inevitably follow suit. What happens next is anyone's guess.
Que sera, sera
Whatever will be, will be
The future's not ours to see
Que sera, sera
What will be, will be
