What proportion of your working life do you spend working on documents? Reports, specs, plans, presentations, etc. The routine paraphernalia of knowledge workers. Paperwork.
It’s a trap. Isn’t it?
We become caught up in the trivialities of layout preferences, wrestling with MS Word settings, and distracted by inane presentation animations. And then there’s the dreaded group approval/sign-off process:
Can you change the font here please? I don’t like the grammar, a diagram, this detail, etc, etc…
We try to manage documents but they end up managing us.
