Stop changing the Rules

Unless needed, truly needed, do not submit changes in units for the sake of change. Every year in the Air Force I see things change. Some are for the better and some are for security but some are just plain dumb. Changing forms that work perfectly fine means that we spend weeks going through, updating, re-filling and re-filing something we just got done changing (or so it seems). Our time could be better spent doing the work we are trained to do instead of trying to stay up to date with all of our programs.


There is no doubt in my mind that other parts of government do the same thing. Heck, just trying to get their pet projects in on the new bills create a lot of waste of time and paper. Our bills need to be streamlined just like the forms we fill out. Less is more, at least that is what they tellus in the military.

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
