As I've mentioned in this blog before, there's one part of my job that just sends my OCD into fits. It's governed by federal regulations and it's really really complicated. An added layer of complication is that the feds ignore us for years and then swoop in to care for a year or two. We could make errors for years with no way of knowing, and not surprisingly, I tend to overstress and overthink!
We really need to make a change to one of our procedures, but my OCD has taken over, convinced that something terrible will happen and I should try to stick with the status quo. But it's simply not true.
My goals are therefore to 1) do what I know is the correct thing and 2) stop the infernal rumination!
I'm off to do something fun instead. I hope everyone's having a nice weekend.
