A Wasted Week

A Wasted Week

All day I tumble and toil,
tossed around like a football.

From around the world material arrives in a melee,
ships, lorries, government’s help to participate in a delay.

Moving from machine to machine can be a marathon race,
keeps me fit – but does the customer care less?

Every job I do has some ‘extras to do’
for the tools & instructions are never as they should be.

Thursdays are always quiet & time for the newspaper,
it’s something about batch planning I hear.

At the end of the week, I carefully count the scrap waste,
however, doing this always creates a bitter taste.

You may be surprised to know that all my herd effort goes to a store,
how long it stays there – maybe evermore?!

A Place for Everything

A Place for Everything

Parts, tools and paperwork everywhere even on my brain,
I ‘tuck’ them somewhere only to lose them again.

A spring clean is needed so what I need,
for all in all, the clutter, it all feels like weed.

I need to put my tool and paper in (the) right compartments,
so that I can concentrate on each job without arguments.

A daily tidy for which I need to set myself some time each day,
it gives me peace of mind, often better then extra pay.

All this is easier said than done,
for we need to keep these changes on the run.

Thinking Flow

Thinking Flow

Every day, on workstation I sit in the muck.
and wonder who pays for all this rework?

Who’s the real customer, who?
Not my boss for – he doesn’t pay for the ‘goo’.

What’s needed is a way, like water from a tap – an instant flow,
so that parts and paperwork never lie idle – always on the go.

Why create all so much extra bits, it makes me sick,
for who want’s last week’s milk?

If only the system made individual parts when required,
rather like a restaurant – for what’s the point of a frozen dinner?

Life’s not perfect – neither is the work we do
but that shouldn’t influence us in wanting to improve.

Drowning in Data

Drowning in Data

Data comes all round in heaps,
millions of it processed, analysed and stored for keeps.

Someone clever decides to capture another useful attribute,
but has it long term value, forgotten in the glute?

Every hour I get a call from a customer, dear
often frustrated and in fear.

His information wrong on the system, bending my ear,
and he’ll be leaving us soon I hear.

I can listen, process and solve his fear,
boss deems more knowledge is in the glute, then in between my ear.

Insight versus Instinct

Insight versus Instinct

Insight is only,
a gap between,
instinct from senses,
and real knowledge,
from your unconscious.

Find that insight,
within the space.

It’s always clear,
in hindsight,
that insight exists,
was always there,
and within you.

Analysis

Analysis

Think not what the data tells you,
more what questions you want answering,
whether it be a profound question
or a simple question,
a bold question or a meek question.

Ponder on the answers you get, ponder long
if it is real insight or dressed up meaning?

If the answers are of real value
they will turn true and even intuitive.

And they will give you the fuel and fire
to make your change happen.
