So. Executive Summary Reports. Right.

So, the thing I love about my job, I also hate about my job, except that, when it all comes out in the wash, I really do love it about my job is that they keep asking me to do things I don't know how to do.

Fun, huh?

I guess they must think I'm competent. I mean, you don't ask someone to write a freakin' executive summary report of the new program that just launched unless you think they're capable of doing that, right?

Except. I've never turned a spreadsheet with random data about issues, notes on issues, assignees and due dates into a coherent report to be presented to the company executive before.

Well, I guess it's not that much different from how my keeping a daily tracking spreadsheet for TheClient$ morphed into me being responsible for creating and maintaining the monthly Sales and Issues Dashboard (complete with bar graphs, pie charts sales, refunds, escalations and more...)

Okay. So. It shouldn't be that much harder, right?

::chews fingernails::

And yet? My brain is running around in scared little circles, shrieking "OMG, YOU HAVE NO TRAINING FOR THIS, YOU'RE OUT OF YOUR LEAGUE, THIS IS IT, THIS IS WHEN THEY DECIDE YOU CLEARLY HAVE NO IDEA WHAT YOU'RE DOING!"

Dear Insecurities,

You suck. Why must you torment me? Please go away, I'm trying to get some work done, and you are distracting me and making me procrastinate.

No Love,
Me

Look for a previous executive summary report to use as a template

Congrats on having your employer's confidence!

I second maverick_weirdo's advice on getting a template, that way it will look like what they are used to.
