Feeling so Sound

Another day at work.

While I don't dislike my job, I'm not sure what to make of it. At my last job, there strict rules in which I had to stay within. While there was a great degree of flexibility, there was some stiffness to the rules. Since I knew where my boundaries were, I was able wrk within them and try many new things: such as getting the Open Directory structure setup, or build and optimize images.

Here, I think there are virtually NO boundaries. The possibilities are numerous: If there is something I want to do I can do it...within reason. I don't think I'm used to this. If I want to redesign the Active Directory Structure, I can. IF I want to modify the WSUS server and change the time when people install updates, I can. I'm responsible for getting the backup policies in place. I'm responsible for defining the default domain policy.

I think it's a bit overwhelming at first. Since College, I've always been in very structured environment, and was molded to fit that. I need to take a step back and relax. There are several things I would like to do; I just need to figure out how start/plan.

I hate to say this but I think I need to go to Project Management Training.
