This post is titled:
Maybe it's a sign of my deficient public school education*, but I always thought that in the workplace it was a manager's job to keep track of stuff, and a worker's job to do work.
Why do I always seem to spend significant portions of my work day maintaining project spreadsheets, updating tracking databases, reporting on dashboards, and entering hours in timesheets?
You shouldn't even take this as a crisiticism of my current employer. This describes most of the places I've worked.
