Heritage Management. I’m doing it wrong.

April 8, 2009

Yipe!

So, at the end of this month I have a heritage management plan due. I’ve had the site I’m working on established since early March and I’ve done some general research on it, and have been need to roll up my sleeves and get down and dirty with working on it. Well, I started a bit of that today and just had that gut punched feeling.

See, I was able to get a management plan from a previous MALAite for a nearby feature that’s related to mine and on reading it today, I realized just how wrong-headed my approach has been and that I better get my butt in gear if I’m going to produce something worth the time I’ll be putting into it. Sure, I’ve been spinning my wheels a lot and procrastinating, but the real problem is my tendency to hermit up and do things all by myself without doing the kind of outreach I really need to be doing if I’m going to do this kind of thing properly. The previous MALAite had meetings with all sorts of stakeholders and the like and on reading his work, that’s clearly what’s called for. I’ve had my thumb up my ass and have been hunting up documents when I should have been on email and on the phone instead. GRAH.
