Crunch Time

While normal folks are making new year resolutions, my company's fiscal year still has three months left in it.  So today I looked at the official list of "things to do this year" that I'm supposed to accomplish at work.  Gak!  I've got a year of work to do in three months...

From what I can tell, the problem is that I've been busy getting plenty of important things done, but at the cost of not working on anything really strategic.  Virtually nothing I do during the day actually makes for progress against the official list.  My this-year goals are all strategic; the contents of my day are all fiddly bits.  I'll have to flip this around if I'm gonna make those strategic goals happen.

This is a common problem for sysadmins.  Has anyone solved it yet?
