I came to work today with one goal -- to clean out my email inbox. I had a bunch of stuff in there that required some action, so it had accumulated over this past week. It's now 4:00 and I have one thing left -- this ethics training thing every researcher at the university who works with human subjects has to complete. It's like an on-line course. I sent away for my password (I set up my account about a month ago) but still haven't gotten anything back.
I am torn. I am getting pretty tired and want to go home, but having this one thing left in my in-box is sticking in my craw. It's been 20 minutes since I requested my password, so I really don't know what's going on.
My solution is to write myself a sticky note (or put it on my to do list) that I have to finish this thing, delete the email, and leave. If I don't get the password over the weekend, I'll just set up a new account on Monday.
Edit: I got the password, but there are 10 "learning modules" to complete. Ugh. No way I am getting that done today, so I've just bookmarked the page and will chip away at them next week.
Still, clean inbox!!
