My Real Job

After about a week at my new job, I think I now see what my job really is.

On paper, I’m supposed to coordinate an adult basic education learning center.  Recruit and support our learners and volunteer teachers, make sure we have space, maintain paperwork.  No problem.

I realized yesterday that the real underlying nature of what I do in my day to day is much simpler: make sure everyone gets along.  Please note that I did not say it was easier, just simpler.

It made me wonder – do a lot of jobs boil down to just that?  Or perhaps most aspects of life in general?
